I started working in the field of recovery over ten years ago when I began to work in an inpatient setting to help equip transitioning adults with sober living, anger management, and life skills. Seven years ago, when I transitioned into working in a nonprofit setting, I discovered a passion for working with people struggling with addiction and soon discovered an equally abiding love for working with families in recovery. After my first year, as part of the BreakAway family, I began to do case management work for both adolescents and adults. I have since taken on the role of Adult Program Coordinator. To this day my excitement in working with individuals has only grown with experience. In conjunction, so has my interest in anger management, family communication, and life skills. I am a Certified Anger Management Professional Trainer, a Certified National Life Coach, and a Certified Addictions Treatment Counselor.
