On September 1, 2000, Mark traded his neckties and loafers for cargo shorts and hiking shoes when he left private practice to begin a new adventure as the Indiana Teen Institute Program Director and Lead Facilitator. He has provided team building, community building, and facilitated programs for businesses, schools, and community groups throughout Indiana and beyond using experience-based methods. His relationship with Indiana SADD has evolved from partner - to consultant - to, in 2018, serving as the SADD Indiana State Coordinator. He had been the Director of Substance Abuse Services, Practice Administrator, and neuro-psychometric technician at Northern Indiana Associates in Psychology (NIAP) from 1989 to 2000. In his spare time, you'll usually find him photographing wildlife or writing his bio in the third person.
