Joe Marino is a proud veteran who served in the United States Army from 2007 to 2012. Shortly after returning home from his tour of duty in Iraq, he decided to relocate from Pennsylvania to California in January of 2013. After moving to California, Joe realized that he needed to make some changes in his life and began his process of recovery. About a year into his sobriety, he was employed as a sober living manager, and remained in that position until he was hired at Iris Healing. Joe very quickly proved himself to be incredibly devoted to the clients he was serving at Iris, and was promoted to Program Director in 2019. Joe is also very active in the recovery community and regularly attends 12 step meetings, continues to work with a sponsor, and sponsors many others. In his free time, Joe enjoys watching sports, playing both card games and video games, and loves spending time with his dog, Pablo.
