Downes, who originally planned to pursue a career as a child and adolescent psychologist, today works as a psychologist for Home Base. On the podcast, he discussed how the trauma and injuries he and his wife Jessica sustained, as well as their rehabilitation at Walter Reed Hospital, led him to pursue a career supporting the mental health needs of service members and their families.
