All Kinds of News for September 16, 2020
September 1, 2020, Raleigh, NC - Green Hill is excited to announce that Marcus Shumate is joining the team as the Clinical Outreach Director. For the first time, Green Hill has created a position dedicated to educating referents, family members, and potential clients about Green Hill’s programs. Marcus brings intimate knowledge of GRreen Hill's organization from his time as the Director of Pavillon’s Young Men’s Program, which many clients have attended prior to joining Green Hill.
“I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Marcus to the team,” says Green Hill CEO Tripp Johnson. “Marcus and I have been friends and colleagues for the past few years and I always knew we’d work together sooner or later. Marcus’s passion, intellectual curiosity, and commitment to the field make him a natural fit for the team.”
Marcus previously served as the Director of the Young Men’s Program at Pavillon, a residential treatment program in North Carolina. Marcus holds a Bachelor’s in Psychology from Gardner-Webb University and a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Gardner-Webb University. At Pavillon, he began as a Continuing-Care Coordinator, transitioned to a primary therapist in various programs, and then developed and implemented the Young Men’s Program. As the Director of the Young Men’s Program, Marcus led the development and implementation of clinical programming, provided direct clinical care, and provided clinical supervision to a team of clinicians and program staff.
Now as the Clinical Outreach Director at Green Hill, Marcus will build strategic relationships for Green Hill throughout the country with a clinically-informed approach. Marcus is passionate for innovation in the field of substance use disorder treatment and promotes the idea that practitioners should be challenging assumed constraints. Given his interests in all things related to human flourishing, Marcus was drawn to the alignment he felt with Green Hill’s mission.
Green Hill’s Development Director Jake Summers added, “We were really trying to find a way to build an outreach department focused on education that was grounded in our values and mission. There are many programs in this field that take more of a sales approach, and that just isn’t who we are. We look forward to working with Marcus to grow our engagement with clinicians and treatment practices across the country.”
