Turn-About Ranch (UT) is pleased to announce the placement of the new admissions director Shane Young, M.S., ACMHC. Shane has a strong history of success with the ranch; Shane began working at Turn-About Ranch in 2009 while completing his master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. His unique opportunity of working as night and line staff contributed to his investment and success as one of Turn-About’s therapists. After a brief absence, Shane accepted his current position as Admissions Director in 2014.
Shane’s passion for counseling and talent for helping others have been a great fit for his role in the Admissions process. Families quickly realize Shane truly cares about their happiness and success. He helps parents assess and navigate the overwhelming events and decisions required to help their children succeed. Shane’s compassion for the conflicting emotions of parents is verified by his dedicated effort to help each and every family who reaches out to Turn-About Ranch.
From one of the parents of a Turn-About Ranch Student:
"…I’m grateful [God] led me to Turn-About, for the people He has place on our journey and, of course, for the outcome and hope for the future. On a personal note, I want to tell you, Shane, how thankful I am for you. Right from that first phone contact with you, I was encouraged and hopeful. (I had so much going on emotionally as both a devastated Mom and a newly grieving widow.) It is obvious to me that you love your job and have a huge heart for these kids. … God is using you in a mighty way. Thank you with all my heart!" -Robyn
Shane earned his bachelor’s degree in Psychology & Family Science from Brigham Young University in 1998. He worked full-time in construction to pay for college and the expenses of raising a family. After college, he built a successful career as a General Contractor. His wife and three children were very supportive with his decision to return to school for his master’s degree in 2009. The nearest school, University of Phoenix, was 3 hours away and Shane had just begun a large log home for a local family, but the family agreed to support him. When asked about it, Shane and his family have no regrets. “We’ve never looked back! It has been hard, but worth it and I couldn’t have done it without my family’s support along with the tremendous opportunities I’ve had with Turn-About Ranch.”
Turn-About Ranch appreciates the passion Shane brings, we look forward to continued success in this new position
