Although born in Torrance CA, Freddy was raised in Black Mountain, NC, and enjoys pointing out his childhood haunts to our students. Freddy is an NC Peer Support Specialist, and previous to working with our students he helped addicts and alcoholics with early recovery at a rehabilitation facility.
As a father of an autistic youth, Freddy was drawn to the work from his personal experience and the desire to work with teenagers. Freddy shares that he loves “helping our students to understand the different possibilities and life choices they can make and how those choices can impact their future.” Freddy is a passionate leader and advocate for our students, and loves helping students set and achieve their personal goals, as well as helping them be “a leader in their own lives.”
When Freddy is not at work he loves spending time with his fiance and their three sons and one daughter. Freddy loves playing almost every sport, can juggle, and has become involved in a local bowling league (and has brought more bowling to work as well). Freddy has even bowled a perfect game!
