Chris Wong started his career as a direct care staff member for adolescents in a psychiatric inpatient hospital. He enjoyed working with the youth so much that he went to Boston University School of Medicine, where he received his Master’s in Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine. After graduating, he worked as a licensed therapist in a variety of settings, including an adolescent residential treatment center, outpatient clinics, and mobile crisis evaluations in the Boston and Cambridge area.

This includes training and coaching for leaders at all levels of the organization to both strengthen and build a leadership pipeline.
