Ep 032: Mikey Martin, Creative Arts Director at Sober College Holds Passion Over Everything
Mikey started working at Sober College because, “I realized that anything I had accomplished in my life is because of my recovery program, and I want the next generation to do bigger and better things than I have.”
Music and sobriety go hand in hand, and he loves being a role model in these young adults’ lives.

Mikey has worked at Sober College since 2011. He began working with the clients at the house as a mentor, and now he gets to work with them in the studio as the Music Coordinator.
Mikey says, “I started working here because I realized that anything that I have accomplished in my life is because of my recovery program, and I want the next generation to do bigger and better things than I have.”
Mikey brings a unique perspective and a musical expertise to Sober College’s Music Program.
