Cody Hawes was born and raised in Hermiston, Oregon where his passions were sports (especially football), singing and activities with family, friends and the LDS church. He worked on the local farms until his graduation from High School and enrolled at Rick’s College in 1999. He went there for a year and was called to serve a mission in McAllen, Texas where he learned the Spanish language and increased his eagerness to serve people around him. After serving his mission, he went back to school at the transitioned BYU-Idaho where he received a bachelors degree in Sociology and a minor in Spanish. He was actually named the “Man of The Year” for the BYU-Idaho college of Religion and Social Sciences. BYU-Idaho is where he met his beautiful wife Kristin while they were EFY counselors. They were married in the Bountiful Temple for time and all eternity. They have been married 7 years.
After a few years of living in Layton where Kristin worked as a Special Education teacher and Cody as a youth sex offender counselor they decided to pursue a Masters degree in Social Work at Eastern Washington University. In their time in Cheney, WA they welcomed Elijah Tucker (4) and Sadie May (2) into the world. There, he became a mental health/sex offender therapist and worked for the departments of correction in Washington and Oregon.
Cody is now working with Life Changing Services as a clinical therapist seeing individuals and couples for almost all therapeutic needs. He is running 3 Sons of Helaman groups each week. He is heading up our Outreach team, working to help make sure church leaders are informed about the services we provide. He is proving to be a strong, skilled and delightful contribution to our office. I think you will enjoy meeting him.
