He focuses his practice on serving the leadership needs of mission-driven and faith-based organizations.

“What drew me to Restore was how comprehensive their efforts are in providing care and pathways to truly restore people to a brighter, safer future,” Scott said. “It is an absolute honor to serve the team at Restore in this extended capacity.” I’m also looking forward to learning alongside my fellow board members and ultimately serving my nonprofit clients in a richer way.”
