Rick Howell, Director of Samaritan, is excited about the addition as the organization works to increase local awareness and service to the community. “Missy’s unique background in both marketing and counseling made her a natural fit for our team,” he said. “Our goal is to come alongside members of our community who are hurting and need guidance as they navigate through the pressures of life. We needed someone to come in and manage the marketing efforts so the rest of our team can focus on their unique roles.”
Samaritan opened locally in 1999 and operates 8 counseling locations throughout Sarasota and Manatee counties. They are fully accredited by The Samaritan Institute, headquartered in Denver, CO.
