chief executive DIRECTOR
John Fennelly
In July of 2013, when I entered treatment and stopped using illicit opioids, I began seriously thinking about who I am and what I wanted to do with my life. Since then, I graduated from UNM with a BA, Summa Cum Laude, in Psychology with a concentration in the Basics in Addiction Counseling (BAC) Program and Philosophy, Magnum Cum Laude, with a concentration in Pre-law. Currently, I am completing a dual Master's with an MBA in Finance and a MACCT in Professional Accounting. I also conduct research in the Neurobiology Lab in the Department of Psychology and at the Behavioral Lab at the Anderson School of Management.
I strive daily to become more than I was yesterday so that I may be in a better position to serve my community today. I want to ensure that not one person in recovery feels as abandoned and hopeless as I did. My goal as ASIR's President is to develop it into a long-lasting, tightly knit, and diverse student organization that will reach out and improve the lives of the people it serves. Additionally, I will lead ASIR and its board by example and pass along valuable skills that I have learned to all its student members, allies, and community members I work with.
