Lamont has been working at 1st Step since March 2021 and has worked in the industry for over 15 years, starting with working with youth at shelters in 2006, and later with adults in 2013. Lamont is also in recovery himself, having been sober since October 2019, which he considers his biggest obstacle to overcome. Lamont’s greatest accomplishment is being the first in his family to graduate from college, but his inspiration to work in this field comes from his grandfather, who recovered from heroin addiction after 30 years and graduated with his Masters in Substance Abuse/Mental Health.
In his free time, Lamont enjoys working out at the gym, watching his favorite sports teams, and spending time with his dog Jersey Blu. Lamont is passionate about his work and dedication to helping others. A fun fact about Lamont is that he loves traveling the world and was a groomsman in a wedding in Sierra Leone, Africa.
