Jeannie Barreda
CEO

Chief Executive Officer

Jeannie’s passion to help others struggling with the disease of addiction and mental health stems from her spouse having an addiction and his return to health through helping others. Jeannie has also mentored spouses of those in addiction providing resources and coping skills during their difficult time. When asked why she believes in treatment Jeannie states, “I believe in treatment because I saw how it helped my family and I know it works, and not just for the addict but for the family as well. I want Mastermind care to provide all we have into our clients; because we cannot take tomorrow for granted”. Jeannie embraces each client and family member of Mastermind Care as her own. She explains “the philosophy at Mastermind Care is that addiction is a three-fold disease of mind, body, and spirit and that those in recovery should be presented the opportunity to be given resources such as education, nutritional and spiritual guidance and have a safe atmosphere where holistic approaches are available.” Outside of the office, Jeannie is a full-time mother to her handsome sons and beautiful daughter. She can also be found volunteering with her family in food drives for her community.
