Transition Coach Eric Quinlan Featured in Professional Series by Smith Rivas
On the second Monday of every month, Smith Rivas features one of their favorite educational consultants, psychologists, or professionals in a related field. They ask everybody the same five questions, designed to show you why they like them and to help you decide whether they’re a good fit for your needs. This month, they chose our very own transition coach Eric Quinlan.
“The more complicated your circumstances are, the greater likelihood that you’ll need a niche service provider who specializes in something with which you may not have prior personal experience. For example, if your family needs a transition coach to help a student get back on track academically after a substance-abuse issue that you just don’t understand, well, Eric Quinlan of Recovery Care Partner does exactly that, and he does it with a wealth of hard-earned experience.
How did you get into this field?
I earned my Master’s degree in teaching and shortly afterward I was fortunate enough to teach at a therapeutic boarding school. I utilized these skills with lots of life experience to be noticed by Don Sloane at Recovery Care Partner. My commonsense and compassionate approach really made me stand out as a great part of the team doing Transition Coaching for Recovery Care Partner.”
