Paul Gilmet recently joined the Rosecrance team as its Alumni Coordinator. Paul will work closely with Fr. Jim Swarthout in developing a new and robust menu of alumni services.
Paul graduated from Loyola University Chicago in 1999 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. He joins the team with a strong background in developing alumni programs within the treatment services setting.
He indicates there are so many ways that Rosecrance can serve clients once they leave treatment, whether through retreats, monthly gatherings, alumni chapters, networking events, recovery enhancement (including wellness, fitness, and meditation), social media engagement, or other social gatherings.
Though Paul is new to the Rosecrance team, he is already making steps towards change, and very literally too. SoulCycle Northshore recently held a charity ride for Rosecrance to support Red Ribbon Week and Paul participated in the event.
“I’ve seen so many people recover from addiction, stay well, and live purposeful and productive lives. In working with our alumni, I get to be reminded of that on a daily basis,” says Gilmet.
He adds, “People who have come out of the grips of addiction have a unique bond. Getting people connected, involved in events and activities together, and keeping them engaged in their Rosecrance recovery is just another way we can help our clients achieve lifelong recovery.”
While he may be spotted at any Rosecrance facility, he maintains an office at the Harrison Campus.
