Bio: I am a full time college student at St Catherine University, (only 2 semesters left!!!) I am using this time to major in marketing. I am also a 6 year Marine Corps Veteran. Recovery has given me the empowerment and confidence to live my life 100% genuinely and live the life I never knew I wanted. 

Sobriety Date: January 24th, 2016

Hobbies: Traveling, working out, stepping outside my comfort zone, hanging out with my nieces and nephew, and all things coffee. I am passionate about helping others discover their voice. As I like to say, "I don't want to be a voice for those in recovery, I like to help those in recovery find their voice.” I am also passionate about figuring out we "market" recovery and not just treatment.

Bio: I am a mom, family member, friend and co-worker.  I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and the recovery community.  Being next to a wood burning fire, when the snow is so heavy that it absorbs all the sounds is definitely one of my favorite times of the year! The family cabin is one of my favorite places to be no matter the season!

Hobbies: Recovery is my passion, I live it and work in it every day. I love to celebrate successes big and small, and grow with the recovery community and to share with others, that this is what recovery looks like!
