Clinical Manager / LCDC
Corey Weber was raised in Geneseo, Il, a rural community west of Chicago near the Mississippi River. A few days following graduation from high school he served in the US Marines. Serving as a Marine; included infantry, security forces, K9 handling, and terrorist intelligence. One of his memorable assignments was at 1st Battalion 1st Marines Headquarters where he was involved in placing combat and recently deployed Marines, at times when they struggled with returning from deployments. It was during this duty that it became clear that there must be ways to reach people including soldiers impacted by tours and deployments. He spent time at Camp Pendleton, Kings Bay Naval Submarine Station, Norfolk Naval Station, Fort Stewart, Fort Benning and Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. In light of raising a daughter, he decided to pursue a career outside of the military. While attending college at Blackhawk State and Western Illinois University focusing on psychology and business majors he began working as a counselor at a residential addictions center and long term therapeutic community modality. Later in the 1990s he transitioned from community based services to corrections care for both youth and adults as a program director and later regional director within a multitude of programs. Following nearly a decade in leading correctional programs he continued his career as a regional director under the umbrella of Housing & Urban Development. This population included serving people with disabilities and veteran mothers in supportive housing group homes and independent apartment living in San Antonio and North Carolina.
Corey has enjoyed a career filled with starting up several programs throughout the country and assisting in the growth of clients and career development of many intern staff. Working within a diversity of people in substance use, mental health, homeless populations, and youth has been a blessing.
Corey has always been a supporter and catalyst to start up veteran based programs. Developing both veterans groups and fatherhood programming connected his life both personally and for purpose in the many years as a counselor, director and regional influence of programs.
Corey now spends his time enjoying his family, grandchildren, and has always kept the enjoyment of the outdoors fishing, hunting, or exploring as his way of finding peace. Finding Warriors Heart so close to home has been another blessing.
My why, is purely the passion and spiritual value to serve. As a young man, serving in the Marine Corp during war gave new meaning to the reality of sacrifice, pain, and having faith in our country.
Serving as a clinician and director in the field of addiction and mental health for over twenty five years has instilled a deeper sense of service and dedication to helping others in their journey of recovery. It has become more than a career, it has become a purpose.
Warriors Heart has instilled a new passion and new dedication to return to my roots of serving with and for our brothers and sisters, our warriors. I know what it means to be a soldier and I know that warriors serving warriors is a mission with purpose and a mission that saves lives.
