  Kirt Lewis, along with a big, compassionate heart, has an array of professional and personal experiences that makes him ideally suited for a coaching role. From quite literally being born into social work where his parents were group home managers for over 30 years, to his experiences in food services, assembly line and shipping jobs, being an independent living and work skills supervisor, private school teacher, 16 years as clergy, over a decade working with refugees and other vulnerable immigrant populations, and being a combat veteran (US Army), there are many ways that Kirt can relate to and support his clients as they strive to accomplish life goals that have financial elements involved. He has called Sacramento home since 2007 and is the proud father of two beautiful girls.
