My desire to provide a caring, compassionate and safe transport environment, led to the foundation of Vision Adolescent Services, Inc. (VAS)
I know first hand what these kids go through and can relate to them on a personal level because I put my parents through the same thing. As a parent, I know the desires to want nothing but the best for our children. With over 23 years of extensive experience in the Adolescent Transport Industry, VAS has grown into a Successful, Widely Trusted, and Respected Family-Oriented Business. I have worked closely with families’ and Educational Consultants nationwide, providing guidance and safe placement of troubled teens in many therapeutic programs all over the world. Being 6’8” and dubbed, ‘The Gentle Giant’ I have created a positive reputation and am proud to announce that of all my years in the business, I have retained a 100% success record for safe transitions of the youth in my care. My knowledge in Adolescent Psychology and Behavior and first-hand experience has made me a leader within the industry. In my down time, I enjoy riding my motorcycle, spending time with my family, living an active healthy lifestyle and helping others; whether it’s volunteering at local organizations or just helping out in the neighborhood.
