Eric Jaeger, RAC
Eric began his career at Power House in 2011, working in various roles. He started out as a Clinical Case Manager, and was afforded the opportunity to become Program Director. He specializes in helping clients get their lives back, which entails navigating debt collectors, lawyers, court related issues, insurance companies, educational institutions, medical offices and various state offices. Cleaning up the “wreckage” of the past addiction can be a challenge to anyone, let alone a young man in early recovery. Eric prides himself on addressing these issues, while simultaneously helping empower his clients by teaching them how to handle challenges independently.
Eric has always wanted to work with others since a young age. His older sister has Down’s Syndrome, and growing up he had the opportunity to volunteer with those who were disabled. Giving back is something that he loves and continues to motivate him today.
Eric is originally from Minnesota, and currently resides in Baton Rouge with his wife and their two dogs. They are both so incredibly grateful for the lives they have been given.
