My work started in 2007 after countless times in jail and a short stay in prison. I decided living the life of an addict no longer served its purpose. It was time for a change. After my last treatment at JFK ADACT and some amazing community support, my life changed.

The time I have clean is a way of showing those that who we were is not going to define what we are capable of doing.

I was employed in a position of helping others in their journey to seek a change. In this life that came a lot of training, with the most important being the Peer Support TRAINING.  This allowed me to be able to use my life experience to help others.

I have served as a board member with Homeward Bound to bring the lived experience to the board members.
