Justin Bouchard

Data Specialist/CRC

Formerly living in Middlebury for five years and now living in New Hampshire working remotely, Justin Bouchard is the data specialist at Turning Point Center of Addison County. Justin identified Turning Point as a recovery home upon his arrival in Vermont, and began volunteering about a year and a half later.

When not Recovery Coaching, getting new Recovery Coaches up to speed on our data system, providing tech support, or running his Open Door Group, you might find Justin spending time with his family, walking his dog, gaming, or on a pair of skates.
