Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Bret moved to Florida in 2014 for a fresh start in the sunshine state. Throughout his 20’s, Bret pursued his craft as a fine dining chef but felt life was pulling him in a different direction. In January 2015, he was given the opportunity to help open and manage the new transitional housing property for Tranquil Shores. Although he still loves to cook, Bret found a new passion for helping individuals in early recovery. Over the last 5 ½ years, Bret has moved on to working with both the Admissions and Insurance teams. Being an alumni of Tranquil Shores himself, he also enjoys coordinating Tranquil Shores’ Alumni Program. Like any true Baltimorean, Bret dreams about picking Maryland blue crabs and Ravens football.
