Steve Zamarripa, MBA
Chairman of the Board and Founder
Born and raised in Southern California, Steve earned his BA from USC and his MBA from Columbia University.
Steve’s mother suffered from an eating disorder, losing her life too soon; his father’s path was fraught with alcohol addiction. Inspired by his personal experiences, he set out on a journey to help others with their eating disorders and addiction.
Steve began working in the Eating Disorder and Addiction field in 2007. Steve created La Ventana Treatment Center, an affordable recovery center, which provides excellent treatment and client care in order to support long-term recovery. La Ventana is held up by a stellar staff that carries the same passion for recovery and service that Steve does. With La Ventana Treatment Center, Steve has found a way to give back to the world, fulfilling his passion to help others live long and prosperous lives.
