Vincent McCarty – Secretary
“We forget: In life, it doesn’t matter what happens to you or where you came from. It matters what you do with what happens and what you’ve been given.” So reads one of Vince McCarty’s favorite quotes from author Ryan Holiday’s “The Obstacle is The Way.”
Vince, a Las Vegas native, believes that the key to his personal fulfillment lies in him being of maximum service to those around him. He knows that the greatest assest he has is his experience through addiction.
