My recovery started in May 1996 and I've been involved ever since except for a brief time when I worked somewhere on the outside. I've been kind of through the different roles here. I started out as a Peer Mentor, I've been a Peer Mentor supervisor, I became a detox supervisor, and then Women’s Program Director. Now I’m starting a new journey with The Healing Place.
It was amazing to be a part of the building of the women’s campus and choosing the location for the women’s campus.When I started at The Healing Place there were 20 beds, so to go from 20 to 240 is pretty amazing.
The miracle for me was being productive and having a purpose in life in all areas – being a mom, being a decent employee, being able to make a difference in the lives of other women, and just having a life.
