I’m Wes, Program Director for Solstice East. I have been with the team since almost the very beginning, and it has been invigorating having the opportunity to bring my experience and vision of what makes a program, and specifically the residential milieu, great. I believe wholeheartedly that it is the people that make the program, and investing in the growth and happiness of the staff has a tremendous effect on the journey of our girls. That, and a steady dose of fun and humor! When I interview potential staff for our program, I look at their passion and energy surrounding helping others as much as education and experience. If you have the hunger to help change someone’s life, the chances are you will. Having worked in multiple residential settings prior to coming to Solstice East, I know this is a special place, which serves a special group of girls and their families. The expansive, nature-driven campus exudes a sense of peace and healing, both inside and out. There is no greater feeling than watching one of our girls complete their journey here and leave a happier, healthier person.
