Hans is a native of Auburn, AL. He started college at Auburn University in 98’. While he was a student, Hans’ growing addiction interfered with his academic studies causing him to drop out of school and enter the workforce. After a few years of continued addiction, Hans found himself having lost another job and facing losing his family. Realizing something had to change, Hans reached out for help and checked into Bradford Warrior. There Hans began his recovery journey and became involved in 12-step fellowship and an active lifestyle. In 09’ Hans got back into school at Auburn and began an internship at the newly founded Reprieve as the “Activities Guy,” which quickly turned into a career. He finished up his degree from Auburn in 14’ and became the Recreation Specialist for The Reprieve.
