I am a Cleveland based social entrepreneur with an interest in reentry employment. As a retired police officer, I saw our broken justice system first hand. I returned to school and became interested in reentry. With a few other entrepreneurs, we started Lakeside Holdings, LLC in early 2015 to train and employ those with barriers to employment in the landscaping, painting, and janitorial fields. Later that same year, I founded Comprehensive Reentry, Inc., an Ohio Nonprofit Corporation to reach even more returned citizens who face overwhelming odds against their successful reintegration.
