I started using substances when I was really young and I’ve tried about every drug there is since then. I’ve had a few periods of sobriety but always struggled to maintain wellness in the midst of abusive relationships and temporarily losing my kids. I’m a former Face It TOGETHER member myself – I know exactly how it feels to reach out and how amazing the connection with a peer coach is.
I’ve primarily worked in the service industry, usually waitressing and bartending. My last job was housekeeping at a local inpatient treatment facility. I loved connecting with the clients, but I knew I had so much more to offer than just cleaning.
Domestic violence, CPS, DSS, mental illness, psychology
I love spending time with my family. It’s not often that we’re all together, but we like to do anything outside, especially camping and hiking. We also do a lot of crafts; painting is my favorite.
