Changes in the Leadership Team

Hello Calo friends and families,

In an earlier email and press release we announced Alex Stavros and his partnership with the Calo team. Thank you to so many who responded so positively. It has been an exciting time for our organization. Growth and opportunity are central to how we think and what we do at Calo. Our ambition is to be the world class leader in trauma-informed treatment of youth. Every step we take is meant to take us closer to that goal.

With that in mind, I am happy to announce that we have created a new administrative position and added two wonderful people to our leadership team. We have added the position of Registrar to our Academic Department and Abby Mayer has just moved into that role. You will continue to interface with her relative to transcripts, credits, treatment team summaries, and IEPs.

Moving into the role of Academic Director is Krista Allison. Krista comes to us from Florida where she has completed all her coursework and other requirements for a Ph.D. in Education. She is currently working on her dissertation, which is focused on residential treatment. Her masters thesis focused on attachment. Krista has a number of years of experience working in a residential treatment setting. She also has worked as a grant writer and in other venues where attention to detail and a need to understand the big picture have been a necessity. With her skills we foresee great things on the horizon in our Academic Department.

Chris Allison is also joining us from Florida. He is taking over for the wonderful Caleb Cottle, our former Program Director, who has gone back to school to complete an MBA. Chris comes to us with great energy and passion and is a natural in our setting. Chris has lots of leadership experience in business environments where he has overseen the training and management of large groups of teen and college student employees. Chris is, to the core, a compassionate human being with the personality to connect with almost anyone around him. We are extremely pleased he has agreed to join us. He will oversee all aspects of our milieu and all our residential coaches will answer to him.

With these additions, our leadership team is complete and is more experienced than ever. Please welcome these new additions to the Calo family.

Warmest wishes to all,
