Future Girl’s Home Committee
Susan began volunteering with Fire Mountain in February 2012 after a friend sent her teenage girls to the sober home. Both girls were struggling with alcohol and drug addiction, cutting, suicide and codependency issues. She was amazed and encouraged by their transformation and decided that she wanted to use her free time to support the owners of Fire Mountain and struggling teens. She also has a dream of opening a girls home with Fire Mountain in the coming years.
In her past life, Susan worked as an air quality specialist in the energy industry. She has over 15 years of project management experience that is beneficial to Fire Mountain in whatever role she is playing – whether it’s mentoring the teens, coordinating other volunteers, or participating in the advisory committee.
Phil & Alicia Puckett
Having sent one of their daughters to Fire Mountain and experienced the success of the program, Phil and Alicia know the importance of a program like this.

Phil has been working in the IT field as a network engineer for the past 15 years and has been involved in a couple of startup businesses, one involving the technical development of data centers, the other involving something a little more palatable……literally.
