Troy’s Personal Journey
Troy never set out to do what he does. As a freshman in college, he struggled to identify a career until he took a Social Work 101 course that started him on a path of self-exploration, personal recovery, and leadership development. Troy was trained in addiction recovery as an intern at Gateway Rehabilitation Center while getting his Masters in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh. Shortly after graduating he moved to the rural town of Yuma Arizona and worked as a clinical social worker and a medical social worker for 5 years.
Troy returned to school and obtained a certification from Cornell University in Human Resource Studies. He then was promoted to a Human Resources Leadership Consultant, working with leaders at Yuma Regional Medical Center.
Following His Heart
As happy as he was, something kept urging him to do something different. There were tools that he was learning that needed to be shared with a much larger audience. After two years of persistent spiritual gnawing (and attempting to ignore it), he gave his boss three months notice and started his own private practice.
He threw himself into building a business with only the foundational HR experience he had learned from the past five years. He began crafting a model of healing that could be used in individual settings as well as the corporate world
As his business continued to grow, the urge to find new ways of sharing the model of healing he had discovered over the course of his life continued to grow. He started working on a book in 2014 and finally published it in MAY 2017.
