Doug’s primary role involves planning, developing and directing services in the state of Tennessee. This serves to assure adherence to SJCS philosophy, mission and quality standards. Doug’s primary motivator for his work is being able to provide stable, healthy, supportive environments which foster personal growth and self-reliance. What Doug most appreciate about St. John’s is its unique history and longevity as a leader in the industry, and the potential to continue its role as a front-runner in engaging new frontiers which enhance quality of life issues for many, many people (even beyond St. John’s). This possibility brings hope for a brighter tomorrow and overshadows the barriers and risks that surround us.
