Pacific Quest is excited to welcome Sharon Findlay to our team! Sharon comes to Pacific Quest with extensive experience working with families and professionals in the therapeutic education field. Sharon joins Erin Levine, JD Daubs, and Kellyn Symthe as part of the PQ Admissions Team and will also work closely with the Outreach and Communications Teams in her new role.
Sharon has worked in mental health, education, and management fields for over ten years; she brings a great deal of personal and professional experience to Pacific Quest. Sharon is extremely dedicated to helping our students and their families heal. She appreciates the holistic and intentional approach that Pacific Quest utilizes. She says, “I’m very passionate about working with teens and young adults going through difficulty in their lives. Pacific Quest truly considers the whole person throughout the growth process, cultivating change and growth that occurs in a safe, healing way.”
After Sharon began her therapeutic program experience with a therapeutic boarding school, she earned her Master of Science in Organization Development, with a focus on resilience in individuals and groups. This emphasis, combined with the systemic and consultative approach her studies offered, inspired Sharon to return to the field with a new goal: helping clients reach their full potential while simultaneously addressing the health of the organization, its staff, and program as whole. Sharon had the opportunity to further hone these skills at a residential treatment center and transitional program. Sharon has witnessed first hand the powerful and life changing outcomes that occur at Pacific Quest as result of her tenure in secondary programs. She is excited to now be a part of the first stage of the change process for so many young people.
Pacific Quest has established an exceptional team of highly-respected professionals to assist families in need during the admissions process. Erin Levine, clinical director of admissions, adds, “Sharon is passionate, knowledgeable, and personable. She a natural fit at Pacific Quest. We are delighted to welcome Sharon to our team!”
