Shane has a recovery story that begins with drug use as a "scared, awkward" middle-school kid leading to active addictions throughout his 20's and the better part of his 30's. Through a combination of events both fortunate and unfortunate—including a stint in jail with multiple felony charges—Shane is now the Manager of Parent and Faculty Education for notMYkid, a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower youth to reach their full potential by inspiring positive life choices.
