Aidan grew up in a household with six other siblings in Seattle, WA. At a young age, he witnessed the mental struggles of his mother only to later see these struggles mirrored by his younger sister as she began her journey through adolescence. This ultimately contributed to Aidan’s interest in the field of psychology leading him to put a halt to his lifestyle as a college wrestler so he could transfer to Southern Utah University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology. During his undergrad years, he worked as a guidance mentor and supervisor at Renewed Hope Ranch before eventually being promoted to the Director of Safety and Compliance. Aidan likes to lead by example doing so by reminding guidance mentors that this is not just a job but rather an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life.
Aidan plans to complete a Master’s degree to become a Clinical Mental Health Counselor. In his free time, he enjoys playing guitar, running, hiking, and spending time with his dog. Aidan has worked as a commercial fisherman in Alaska and hopes to go back someday.
