Jared Romig began his career in the credit card/corporate credit industry immediately after high school. The next 15 years were spent primarily in leadership roles which cleared his path to be a department lead with a fortune 500 corporation. Jared’s career success was not cohesive with his personal struggle with drug addiction. After losing all he had attained, Jared’s new reality was a life of homelessness, in and out of jail. Jared knew that drastic changes were needed as this was not the life he had intended. He relocated to Prescott in 2017 to initiate that change and, shortly after, stared his employment at the CCJ Thrift Store. CCJ gave him a second chance and, three years later, he transitioned into his new position as an advocate. He is a proud graduate of the Yavapai County Drug Court. He is a recent honors graduate from Yavapai College and will continue his education at NAU to pursue his Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies in Applied Human Behavior. These days, Jared prefers the simple life. He loves spending time outdoors or relaxing at home with is partner and their two cats.
