Kevin is a combat wounded Marine Corps veteran, receiving a Purple Heart for injuries sustained in Iraq. Kevin is also a person in long-term-recovery (Suboxone saved his life), remaining a vocal community advocate for harm reduction modalities. His presentation weaves together his personal story with his passion for changing the way Veterans are treated.

Serving for 11 years with the Special Olympics of North Carolina, and 6 years at NC Brookhaven’s Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT), Kevin came to appreciate the healing power of “the human connection.”

Kevin is a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist, and Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate, now working as the Coordinator for the Buncombe County Veterans Treatment Court, a non-adversarial, treatment-based diversion program for justice-involved veterans. He also serves as a Court Appointed Special Advocate/Guardian Ad Litem. In his free time, Kevin is a drummer, playing with Tyler Ramsey (from Band of Horses), Electric Owls, and Her Marigold.
