After a busy summer and fall, Pure Life Adventure is pleased to announce that Ari Terry has joined the team as Outreach and Marketing Coordinator. This addition to the Pure Life team will ensure that each student and their family has an opportunity to work closely with the staff preparing for the student’s stay in Costa Rica.
Ari brings a wealth of experience to her role at Pure Life, having been in the mental health field for the last 15 years after graduating from Brigham Young University. Her career began in admissions at the New Haven Treatment Center, where she realized she had a passion for helping people and families in this space and shifted her focus to developing marketing campaigns and events to support the center.
From there, Ari worked with educational consultant Tamar Ancona, which allowed her more flexibility to focus on her growing family. Most recently, Ari was with Soublis Psychological Associates, a private practice psychology office working directly with families.
Pure Life is thrilled to have someone with Ari’s well-rounded experience join the team. “We were impressed with Ari’s background and commitment to helping young people and families in crisis. Her well-rounded resume is perfect for what our students and families need in terms of support and sensitivity. Ari and I will be working together on outreach and admissions so that the families we work with can still expect the personalized experience that has made Pure Life so successful.” says Andrew Taylor, Owner.
Ari joins Pure Life Adventure’s bicultural team, providing a therapeutically sophisticated and holistic approach to helping adolescents with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of motivation, executive function deficits, trauma, and substance abuse. Our students are individuals with genuine challenges looking for lasting change.
