I have an incredible passion and drive to help other alcoholics and addicts like myself find the help they need. Recovery has saved my life. I was born and raised in Atlanta, Ga. I was a hairstylist for 10 years along with managing several salons in that time. I discovered my true calling of working with other people of concern when I began working for a treatment center in Atlanta. I volunteer for several treatment centers in Atlanta running family groups to help educate family members about their loved ones in treatment. My goal in life is to help more people receive the connectedness to human life that we all desire. I look forward to working with you and your family!
