“It is my duty and opportunity to impact real change in peoples’ lives and help them reach the quality of life they aspire to have. Society has created wounds and stigma around people struggling with mental health and addiction, but I see the depth in their souls. I value helping others find hope, love, and serenity. I want people to know that they can recover and reach their goals. The motto I live by is to see every person as they are, meet them where they are, and plant seeds of hope within the multitude of layers found within recovery.”

“In my spare time, I enjoy repurposing old things and woodworking with my hands. I also love spending time with my family, my kids, and participating in their activities. I was an introvert as a child, but as I grew I began to process life differently. I believe life is so fleeting, so I live in the moment because every moment matters.”
