As Polaris moves into this exciting event, they have also brought on a new team member, Angi Grassley, as their Admissions Director. Angi comes to Polaris with nearly a decade of experience working in the mental healthcare field. After earning her Bachelor of Science in Human Services from Metropolitan State University, she started working towards her Masters of Business Administration from Saint Mary’s University, which she is currently completing.
Angi has vast experience working with the LGBTQ+ population, formerly serving as the Admissions Director at the PRIDE Institute in Minnesota. Angi knows from personal experience the struggles that families can go through when trying to find the best program for their child. That experience drives her passion for helping families navigate the many options they face when looking for a program that will bring the best possibility for recovery.
