Shawn Hunsberger, RN is a senior member of the staff and has been with 1st Step family for over 15 years. Shawn came to 1st Step as a client in 2005 and started her journey of recovery. She knew that she was in a special place and wanted to be a part of helping others change their life just as she did. Over time, Shawn has become one of the pillars in our treatment community. She quickly progressed in the company, starting as a Behavioral Health Tech and is now our Director of Nursing. Her continued education, passion and personal experience is what makes her such an integral part of 1st Step. Shawn is responsible for overseeing the nursing staff, collaborating with MDs and APRNS, and ensuring all clients get the proper care to assist in their recovery. Shawn not only takes care of our clients at 1st Step but also takes her care-taking skills home; between her dogs, cats, chickens, and alligators it’s safe to say Shawn is a true caretaker at heart.
