"We're all recovering from something, so let's be compassionate towards one another"
My purpose is to use my passion, authenticity, and heart to help others genuinely express their unique stories and strengths in a loving and powerful way.
After graduating from Rivier University with a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and landing my "dream job," I knew I was not doing the work I was put here to do, so I followed my intuition and left my job to help empower people in addiction and mental health recovery. Today I run Entrepreneurs in Recovery® to facilitate workshops, trainings, and events for individuals, recovery community organizations, companies, learning environments, addiction treatment and mental health centers. My work is helping to build communities of recovery.
I started Entrepreneurs in Recovery® in 2017 as a way to transform the lives of 5000 men and women in addiction recovery through one-on-one coaching, facilitation, and speaking. I've expanded my work into communities, certified addiction recovery coaching, workplaces, and sober living residences throughout the United States. I'm a XCHANGE certified guide and faculty member with a deep passion for facilitating meaningful conversations to bring out the best in people, the community, and the world.

My addiction and mental health recovery story began in 2005 when I was arrested. At 22 years old, I was looking at spending many years of my life in federal prison due to my addiction to cocaine and opioids. Facing serious consequences for my actions, I began connecting with mentors, connecting with a recovery community, changing my daily habits and focusing on my recovery. I followed a recovery toolkit I developed called F.E.A.R.S. - Focus, Elevate, Appreciate, Resilience, Self-care. I'm also a HeartMath® Certified Trainer ready to help teams and organizations learn how to build team coherence and thrive.
I recently published my first book about an uncommon recovery ritual called Smash Your Comfort Zone with Cold Showers.
