Ryan Smith, MS
Manager of Business Analysis
Ryan joined our organization in 2019 as the Senior Financial Analyst for Footprints to Recovery before transitioning into his current role as Manager of Business Analysis for Aliya Health Group. He earned a master’s degree in taxation from Northern Illinois University and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Iowa. Prior to joining Aliya, Ryan held financial analysis positions for outpatient health care facilities and hospitals. Through this experience he gained an appreciation for the work and passion of medical staff and a desire to use his skill set to support those on the front lines of health care.
Hearing that someone has completed treatment or that they have come back to continue their recovery journey is what Ryan finds most rewarding about his work. He holds deep admiration and respect for both people getting treatment and the clinicians providing it. In his free time, Ryan enjoys spending time with family; playing sports, board games, or trivia; and seeing live music or playing it himself.
“I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the help of the amazing team at Footprints To Recovery. They gave me the tools and taught me how to use them to sustain long term recovery. Be the change you wish to see.”
