occupation - Registered Nurse & new mom.

favorite movie - Dirty Dancing

vision statement - to take the shame out of the disease of addiction through kindness and love rather than judgement.

personal story - 7 years ago I was addicted to opioids of all kinds. I didn't believe I would be able to ever get out of the hole I had created. Within a matter of months I had lost everything that was important to me, my family, my career, my health and most importantly my self respect. Once everything was gone, I was able to see that if I didn't do something, I would most definitely die of this disease. Fortunately there were people in the recovery world who could love the unlovable addict and nurture the human being that was buried so deep inside of me. I didn't even know it was there anymore. Those people gave me hope. They helped me little by little to get my life back. Today I have a life that is beyond my wildest dreams. I could not have asked for a better way to live. I have an opportunity to be a person who can love the unlovable addict and nurture the human being buried inside.
