Coach type: Person with addiction and loved one

Coaching since: 2019

Lived experience: 

From a very young age, I've been surrounded by addiction and the lifestyle that comes with the disease. I was in the foster care system when drugs took hold of my life. The criminal justice system helped me find a new way of life in 2017 and I've been well ever since.

Professional background: 

I grew up in Grand Forks and have a strong background in customer service. Previously, I've let my criminal background define my worth in work, but now I'm using my lived experiences for the greater good.

Expertise:  

Criminal justice, foster care system, trauma, depression, anxiety

Interests:  

I love to be creative with paint and other crafts, and I love finding new music that feeds my soul. I'm passionate about reading fictional books and love to be outside doing activities such as fishing.
