John Uberto joins EDGE Learning & Wellness & EDGE Advance as Director of Business Development
EDGE Learning & Wellness, a Chicago-based Transitional Living Community for young adult students attending college, vocational programs, certificate programs, and other post-secondary solutions, welcomes John Uberto to the EDGE Learning & Wellness family. John will be joining EDGE as Director of Business Development. In this role, he will meet with referring professionals across the country to speak about the EDGE program and how EDGE can create lasting, sustainable change in the lives of EDGE students.
Uberto attended Depauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, and graduated with a Bachelor in Neuroscience with a focus on substance abuse treatment. John fell in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains during a summer externship in Asheville, NC. He was delighted to return after his graduation from college to work at a wilderness therapy program for young adults with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. After his time working in the woods, he worked at a therapeutic boarding school starting as the Student Life Director, Program Director, and eventually became the Director of Outreach. John most recently worked at a wilderness therapy program for at risk youth in the Business Development department. He is excited to be back in the young adult treatment world working with referral sources. In his spare time, John enjoys playing competitive volleyball, CrossFit, boxing, and traveling.
EDGE Learning and Wellness continues to build a team that is optimized to provide young adult clients and their families a framework of highly individualized, responsive support in a warm, encouraging community environment
