“I have always had a genuine interest in helping others. As a child I can remember getting in trouble for getting out of my seat to help other students. As I got older my parents taught me to always help others as long as I was not harming myself in the process. I soon discovered that my desire to help others was more of “a way of living” and a principal that guided my personal and professional life.
My commitment to help others continued as I earned my B.S. in Psychology. I hold a Masters of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling from Thomas University. I am also certified as a Rehabilitation Counselor, Certified Addiction Counselor II (Georgia) and a National Certificated Addiction Counselor II. My most recent work experience includes being the Clinic Manager of a Narcotic Treatment Program with Aegis Medical Systems in California ––treating heroin and other drug dependencies on an outpatient basis ––and occupying the position of Child & Adolescent Program Manager for Sycamore Centre.
I believe that every person regardless of their origin, history, or socio-economic status has strengths, worth and dignity. I believe in empowering people to acknowledge, identify and use their talents. I my work I see every day how truly important it is to validate who we and to utilize the skills and gifts God has given each of us. I am a devoted wife and the proud mother of three teen-aged girls and one son.”
“Life is what you make it! When life altering obstacles arise and prevent us from traveling the road that we have mapped out for ourselves, you create another road and keep it moving! I choose laughter, joy, humor, and the ability to give everyone the benefit of another chance, be it a second, third, or fourth. In March of 2006 I was given the chance to work for the Heritage Foundation. I was extremely excited about the opportunity to witness treatment working. I believe treatment has to start with giving another chance to that person that nobody else would. It is refreshing to see the transformation from what a person used to be, to what they can be.”
