New Focus Academy, a therapeutic residential program and specialized school for adolescent boys ages 12-18, is excited to announce a new addition to their admissions team - Tasha Cedarstrom. Tasha joined New Focus Academy in the spring of 2020. She was hired as a Coach and was recently promoted to the role of Admissions Coordinator. “Tasha has been such a wonderful addition to our team,” says Marisa Davis, Admissions Director at New Focus. “We couldn’t be more excited to have her working more closely with families and industry professionals.”
A Heber City native, Tasha developed a passion for working with children on the Autism Spectrum early on in life, starting working as a teacher’s aide in a classroom for students with special needs from a very young age. Since then, she has accrued valuable experience in customer service that will be a great asset to her admissions work.
“I always knew that I wanted to work with children with special needs and that is what drew me to New Focus Academy,” says Tasha. “Seeing the students’ growth throughout their stay at our program has been incredibly rewarding, and I am very excited to have the opportunity to work more closely with the New Focus families in this new role.”
Tasha will be assisting Marisa in a variety of tasks related to admissions. She looks forward to connecting with other industry professionals as she continues to grow in this role.
