Recovery Beyond is excited to welcome Mark Adams as the Director of Programs. Mark brings over 20 years of experience creating and leading programs, experiences, and communities that teach and guide people toward more natural and joyful health as a way of living. Mark has a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, a master’s degree in Exercise & Sport Science from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, and an undergraduate degree from Harvard University. In 2005, he co-founded ONVO, a boutique whole body health community in the Bellevue-Seattle area that attracted more than 5,000 clients during its decade-plus existence.
Mark has a deep commitment to nurturing healthy lifestyles for others. He shares his vision for the role, “I hope to help bring an optimistic and holistic recovery lifestyle to our programs and, most importantly, to the lives of our participants. The reality is I constantly think about health and wholeness. The passionate ‘why’ of my career has precisely been about helping people live better, healthier lives in a more holistic, natural, and joyful way. My driving question for folks is, ‘Can you live it?’”
Mark found his way to Recovery Beyond through good friends who introduced him to the organization’s founder, Mark Ursino. After hearing the history of Recovery Beyond, Mark Adams was driven to support the mission. He hopes to facilitate healthy lifestyle activities in meaningful and lasting ways. He explains, “I would like to see Recovery Beyond grow as an active community that is known for its sense of family and a true spirit of living that animates and emboldens our programs and people!”
