Upon returning from Honduras, Central America, after ten years as missionaries, owners Mike & Marty Edwards wanted to continue helping people. Marty's background in education and mental health combined with Mike's passion for helping people and his talents with business and marketing created the perfect combination to realize their dream.
Years ago, Marty began to question; is it possible to combine people's educational needs with counseling? She knew the two often went hand in hand. With encouragement from friends and family, she decided to follow her passion and make the jump. Breakthroughs of North Florida was born on February 10, 2017. Mike continued to work in the HVAC business to financially help the business launch, and helped behind the scenes working late hours. He officially joined Breakthroughs in 2019.
Breakthroughs began, and is deeply rooted in our passion for helping people. It's about meeting people where they are, whether that is educationally or personally, and providing a peaceful and loving environment in which to connect and learn.
