Training Coordinator

Jonathan Bower

Jonathan began working in the Behavioral Health field in his early 20’s and has spent nearly twenty nears working in a variety of positions and non-profit agencies serving at-risk youths and their families. Originally from Philadelphia, he relocated to Anchorage in 2003 to pursue an MFA in Creative Writing, a degree that in addition to his work at DFS affords him the opportunity to teach part-time in the English department at University of Alaska Anchorage. Jonathan credits his lifelong interests in writing and music for helping him ward off burnout in such a rigorous and challenging field over the years. In 2014, he’ll release his second album in two years, and head back to school for a Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology at Alaska Pacific University.
