Ken is happiest when he is spending time with his family. He has been married for 28 years and has five children. He also enjoys spending time with his dog and taking motorcycle rides with the club he is part of.
He finds happiness by being an active member of Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. He is thoroughly involved in helping people recover and knows first hand how leaving a life of addictions can turn a person’s life around: “I am a recovering addict. I am very active in recovery with Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. I have been through treatment myself and I understand the struggle. My life has become amazingly different now that I’m clean and I feel it is my responsibility to help alcoholics and addicts recover and have a chance at a better life like I was given.” Ken also loves to volunteer at Rescue Mission, specifically for the events related to AA and NA.
The passion Ken has for helping others makes him a great asset to Asana Recovery. He works as a Support Specialist, providing one-on-one care to clients in the form of medical and health observation, assisting and providing information about medication, and coordinating external appointments and services.
Ken has a unique background and has always excelled at school. He is proud to say that was a straight-A student and on the Dean’s Honor Roll. He attended CAL State Fullerton, where he studied computer programming and data processing. He also attended Los Angeles Trade Tech College and Los Angeles Community College for film and television.
His training in tech and film, and certification in Panavision and RED Cameras, lead him to be involved in television and short films. He has produced documentaries and a show for cable television. He also has experience in photography and spends a lot of time working with Property Management Companies.
If there is any free time left in Ken’s busy schedule, he spends it as an artist and musician.
Ken’s perspective of addiction and recovery is part of what makes him an essential team member at Asana. He said: “There are a lot of tragedies that come along with the world of addiction, but it is the success stories that make it all worthwhile. I truly feel that every person deserves to have joy and peace in their life.”
