Working and living a life in recovery, I find more joy and pleasure in daily activities leading to a better quality of life. I want to help other addicts like I was satisfied. I want other addicts to be attracted to the fact that by getting clean and sober, I have chosen to take my life back from the powerful grip of abuse and addiction.

What inspired you to choose this profession?
What would you want someone to know about working with you?
That I, too, was hesitant to start this journey in recovery. I was scared, felt alone, and angry – but with all this said – I have found a new purpose in working towards healing versus trying to “stay clean.”
I work at the lighthouse because when I was a client here, I had a voice, felt heard, and felt understood. I decided to work for Lighthouse because I felt a sense of “family.”
What do you wish people knew about Lighthouse who might be hesitant?
I wish people knew how Lighthouse is not your “cookie cutter” program. And the amount of detail and time goes into helping our clients heal and giving them the best possibility to succeed.
