Caleb Steele is a therapist here at Diamond Ranch Academy. He has been at the ranch for almost two years. You can tell it is Caleb coming up that good old dirt road in a distinguishable 1972 orange GMC Jimmy. On the outside it looks like a piece of junk, but in Caleb’s eyes it is as nice as a Rolls Royce.
Caleb loves living in a small town such as Hurricane. He is used to the slower pace and small town feel. He grew up on Middleton Idaho. He didn’t take much time in outside of school to pursue hobbies, from the time he was a freshman in high school until his senior year he worked as a butcher at the local marked called Starmerc. From high school he went on to serve an LDS mission to Melbourne Australia, and served in Tasmania as well. While he was in Australia, a beautiful girl named Stephanie and her family moved next door to Caleb’s family. Caleb went on his first date with his new next door neighbor and eventually married her. They now have 2 ½ kids, one boy and one girl, and expecting another girl in 5 months.
Caleb attended Brigham Young University/Idaho where he received his Bachelors Degree in Psychology. He pursued his master’s degree at the University of Utah in Social Work. His first job out of school is here at Diamond Ranch Academy. Caleb loves it here. He loves his fellow employees, and enjoys working with the students. Caleb eventually would like to complete a PhD and teach at a college. He is a white/blue personality. He loves to play basketball and work out at the gym. Caleb is an excellent therapist and fits well into the Diamond Ranch Academy family.
Caleb’s supervisor made the following comments:
Caleb is an exceptional therapist and employee and provides much needed comic relief to the Clinical Department. Caleb is a dedicated therapist and is well liked by his students and co-workers. Caleb’s easy going personality and friendly nature allow him to connect with people easily and form trusting relationships. Caleb is a real asset to the clinical team.
