Coach type: Person with addiction and loved one
Coaching since: 2021
My addiction to meth started very young – it’s something I grew up around. I had several years of wellness before relapsing in 2015 and spending three years in federal prison for drug-related charges. Once I finally accepted help from others, I was able to find the support and connection I needed for long-term wellness. I want to be that person who sees the best in someone even when they can’t.

I’ve worked in the food industry on and off for several years. Additionally, I was as an addiction counselor for three years and worked closely with pregnant women and mothers.

My biggest joy comes from spending time with my sons and husband. We like to take our Great Dane for walks, visit family, go fishing and enjoy a good meal! I also enjoy going for a run, doing yoga or spending time with a good book.
