Coach Type: Person with addiction
Coaching Since: 2009
I grew up in a toxic environment and suffered from childhood trauma. My addiction started when I was about 11 years old, and I began my wellness journey around age 37, after spending time in prison.
I've served as a paid peer coach for four years. Prior to that, I spent five years volunteering with Face It TOGETHER and worked for more than 25 years in the food industry.
Criminal justice system, drug court, LGBT community, childhood trauma
I enjoy riding my Harley Davidson around the country, exploring the beauty of the national forests and the great outdoors. I also have a passion for creating found art.
