Tim and Haley Stroshine
Often times at Diamond Ranch Academy we get a husband and wife team that together and individually add so much to the family atmosphere DRA has tried to capture. Haley and Tim Stroshine both work at DRA but in different arenas.
Haley Stroshine is an Administrative Assistant. She has the opportunity to meet and interact with the parents when they come to DRA for visits. Haley said it always brings a smile to her face when parents see first-hand the change their child has made in just a few short months. She feels there is nothing better than being a part of a team that helps change lives for the better.
Haley’s blue/white personality helps her feel compassion toward the students and families she meets. Her white helps her to think logically and be calm and patient in stressful situations. Haley’s past job and educational background has given her the experience to manage efficiently. She was a manager at a food storage company call Shelf Reliance, attended the University of Utah, BYU-Idaho and a semester at Utah Valley University pursuing an exercise science degree, in hopes of becoming a physical therapist.
Haley loves the outdoors, whether it’s playing soccer, running, camping, and hiking, or fishing. She loves watching football (including our own DRA football team)! She enjoys cooking and trying new recipes but most of all she loves spending time with her husband Tim.
Speaking of Tim… Tim Stroshine is part of DRA’s Youth Development Staff. He is actively pursing a degree in biology at Dixie State College with the hopes of being accepted to medical school in the fall of 2014. Tim is very much looking forward to becoming a doctor. He would love to be and anesthesiologist and work in the operating room. He also has a passion to eventually go to third world countries and help those less fortunate with their medical issues.
Tim is a full time student during the week and spends his weekends at DRA. His “big blue” personality helps him with his job because he is motivated to help the students through his overactive compassion. His blue makes him a perfectionist, which helps him to see the small things before they become big issues.
Tim receives the most satisfaction from seeing a young man finally understand the purpose for being at DRA, and allows the program to help him. Tim also feels the benefit from therapist training he receives. It helps him understand more about the issues our students deal with, and how his position can support their success.
Outside of work and school, Tim loves to play golf. He, like his wife, enjoys the outdoors and loves to camp and hike. Most of his time is spent with his family. Tim comes from a large family of 8 with five brothers and two sisters. There is always something going on.
