In the spring of 2004 Adam left a job at an Adjudicated Youth Program in Florida and drove across the country to work for the summer in a Adolescent Wilderness Assessment Program in Montana. He didn’t know it at the time but this decision would shape the course of the rest of his life. After that first amazing summer in Montana he moved to Utah where he worked three years for Adolescent Wilderness Therapy Programs and then another seven years for Adult Wilderness Therapy Programs. When he finally left the woods in 2016 to return to school, he had worked for 8 different Wilderness Programs in 5 different states. For the last several years he has been working on a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from The University of New Mexico with plans to go on for a Masters of Social Work next.
