Volunteer Spotlight | CARL!

Carl is a long-time volunteer with us at NAMI of Washington County. He has taken on many hats at our organization and we couldn't do it without him!

Please read his biography below!!

​"I was born barefoot. Son of a shoe repairman. Went to Sunset High School then Phoenix for college where I earned a Bachelor Degree in Computer Information Systems. After that I worked at Boeing supporting computer systems. It was there where my mental health problems started. I went on to work at Dex (the local phone company), Dial soap, American Express, Northern Arizona University, Nike, Freightliner, UTI package delivery, Intel and many more companies. I supported and developed computer systems from place to place as a Business Systems Analyst and Data Analyst. I am currently on disability and found my niche in life. Serving others.

I volunteer at NAMI of Washington County where I have been a Men's Group Facilitator, Statewide Connections Facilitator and participated as a Peer in multiple groups in a week and volunteered in the St. Vincent's Outreach Program. Currently I facilitate Social Connections After Hours and the Sunday Connections Group with Clay. I also maintain and organize a Compassionate Call list for NAMI. I have put together the NAMI Summer Art Show.

I am full of ideas. I love helping people. I would make a great addition to the Board of Directors where I can provide ideas and share knowledge of the Peer to Peer groups."
