Isaac Salazar, CRM PSS PWS (he/him)
 

Isaac Salazar grew up in Lemoore, California, outside of Fresno. He was raised in a large Hispanic family where he learned the value of hard work while laboring in the fields with his grandpa. In 2010 he moved up to Portland where he immediately fell in love with the city, the people, and the natural beauty surrounding Portland.

 

After getting sober in 2018, Isaac gave up his career in refrigeration and HVAC to become a Recovery Mentor; supporting individuals as they navigate their way through early recovery. He then worked as a Housing Director and loved this work so much he decided to open his own sober living homes where he still spends his time supporting his clients to lead happy, healthy, and productive lives. 

Isaac believes that everyone can be successful if given the right opportunities. He loves helping others and being of service and is known for going above and beyond in helping everyone who stays in West Coast Sober Housing's homes. 

Isaac spends his free time as a DJ at local recovery events, enjoys watching Ghost Adventures, and is a foodie and loves finding hidden gems of underground local Portland restaurants.

Together, Isaac and Solara have a big, beautiful, happy family, who all love to go camping, swimming, and enjoying the many experiences that Portland has to offer.
