Peer Recovery Specialist

“I love knowing that I am helping people every day.”

I am originally from Northridge, California, which is a suburb of Los Angeles in the San Fernando Valley. I now live in Memphis, Tennessee. At Wayspring, I love knowing that I am helping people every day. I have worked so hard in my recovery, and it is so rewarding seeing how hard our members work in their own recovery. It’s special that I get to be a part of that.

For fun, I love to write short stories with my 7-year-old, play the card game Gin, and cook interesting things that make people’s mouths water! Also, I love karaoke; my favorite season is fall, especially on crisp, cool days; I love spending time with my kids; and I love shoes.
