Wood Palmer is Curran Seeley’s Peer Specialist. He can offer local knowledge, resources and some of the best help available to support groups. After early education and High school in Salt Lake City, Wood moved to the Teton Valley. He worked for a few decades for a local trout fishing outfitter as a guide. “Having seen lots of ‘water under the bridge’ and having made my own personal life changes for myself, that brought a new outlook on life. I now find great joy in helping others, and as part of the team at Curran Seeley. I enjoy living in the Tetons with my wife Ann, our four cats, and three dogs. We miss our kids and are proud of our loved ones who are away at college. With faith, family and friendships, I like to spend time outdoors; summertime chasing large trout on the water or birdies on the golf course, and the winter looking for bluebird days with deep powder at the ski hill.
