Christian began working with Alpine Academy’s parent organization, Utah Youth Village, in 2003 after receiving a Bachelor’s Degree from Brigham Young University in Marriage, Family, and Human Development. He worked as a Families First Specialist for three years, delivering the principles of the Teaching-Family Model to families in their homes. He came to Alpine Academy as Admissions Director in 2006, and his primary role is to guide families in learning about and enrolling their daughters at Alpine. He enjoys meeting the girls as they arrive, and staying connected to them and their parents through the duration of their stay.
Christian holds a Master of Counseling degree through the University of Phoenix and is licensed as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor. He is also licensed to facilitate training in material from the Arbinger Institute within the Utah Youth Village and Alpine Academy.
Experiences growing up in a loving and nurturing home have inspired Christian to seek to help children and families to achieve the same happiness he has in family relationships. His greatest joy now comes from his own family: Christian is a grateful husband and proud father of three active and happy boys.
