National Alumni Director
Rachelle Vargas joined Vogue Recovery Center in March 2020 as a Behavioral Health Technician. Since then, she has taken on various roles within the organization including Shift Lead, Alumni Coordinator, and Director of Alumni Services. Her current position as National Alumni Director for Aliya Health Group involves overseeing all Aliya alumni programs, engaging with the community, and providing support to the alumni team.
Rachelle graduated from Wyotech in 2011 with a degree in Medical Assisting. She is currently pursuing her degree in Business Management. She is also a Reiki Master and is certified in Spiritual and Holistic Healing. Prior to joining the Aliya Health Group team, Rachelle worked as a Project Manager at Barr Commercial Door from 2011 to 2014, an Associate at Irvine Company from 2014 to 2018, and at Safe and Secure Alarm and Video from 2018 to 2020. Her past work experience, both in the behavioral health field and management roles, has contributed significantly to her current position. These roles have equipped her with valuable skills in problem-solving, team building, strategic planning, effective leadership, and fostering relationships within the recovery community.
Having experienced her own journey of recovery, Rachelle felt called to help individuals and families with mental health disorders and addiction. She is driven by the desire to share her experience, strength, and hope to help others achieve long-term sobriety. Outside of work, Rachelle finds joy in spending time with her family, traveling, hiking, going to the gym, reading, and following hockey and baseball, her two favorite sports.
“My time at Vogue Recovery was truly life changing. The staff are themselves recovering addicts and understand the struggles we face as addicts. I can’t thank enough the Behavioral Tech Staff — Rachelle, Andrew, Matt, Eric, Nikki, Katie to name just a few. The nursing staff is amazing and took awesome care of me when I had COVID. Theresa and Melissa are amazing Nursing Directors. My therapist Jessica Otto saved my life! Thanks JO. And Tiffany my Caseworker-thank you. From the cooking staff to the fabulous cleaning staff Vogue Recovery is a top organization. Thank you, Vogue. I have my life back.”
