Edmund Smith, SUDP

Executive Director

Over the last few years of my career as a Drug Court Coordinator I recognized the need for improved access to Residential Substance Use Disorder Treatment in Snohomish County, assembled an amazing group of Board Members who supported this vision and was fortunate enough to connect with a local business owner / contractor who made it all become a reality.  As Executive Director, I’m so grateful to see HRC fulfill it’s mission of compassionately serving those in need by giving them the tools they’ll need to build new lives in Recovery!  When I’m not working at HRC, I enjoy spending time with my wife & daughter and taking photographs around the Pacific Northwest.

Kozi Colberg, RN

Nursing Consultant

A considerable amount of my nursing background includes medical, surgical, emergency and mental health experience.  Beginning in 2012 I chose to direct my career towards fighting the opioid crises eventually becoming certified in the field of addiction medicine.  My passion is working with likeminded professionals developing new strategies to treat and support those afflicted with this disease while providing ongoing education to help reduce its associated stigma.  My work life balance is supported by my husband and our large family including my golden retriever.  For stress relief and enjoyment, I quad skate, take nature walks, and ride motorcycles. The garden snail reminds me of my motto which is to “slow down and cherish life’s moments” because every day is a gift that has an uncertain ending.  I’m very excited to be part of the Holman’s Recovery Center team!


Heather Cherry, AAC, SUDP


Addiction has had a profound impact on my own life, providing the crisis and suffering that paved the way for my transcendence from chronic state of lack and victimhood. There are beautiful gifts on the other side of addiction. We simply need the willingness and open-mindedness to seek with curiosity and we will find: a perfect catalyst pushing us towards transformation, an invitation to become our authentic selves, the evolution of suffering into wellbeing, and a springboard to freedom from dependence on externals.  It is my honor and privilege to serve as a guide to others on their own journeys of transformation, and I will walk beside you as you transform the despair into something beautiful. 


Daniel Flax, SUDPT


My journey to become a Substance Use Disorder Professional began a few years ago as I found myself no longer able to keep looking away from the epidemic suffering of individuals and families being destroyed by addiction. I find this work in alignment with my deep commitment to helping others and feel fortunate to have found a place to work such as Holman Recovery Center, providing compassionate care in a beautiful supportive environment. When I’m not doing counseling at HRC, I spend my free time vegetable gardening and doing craft work.
