Welcome to Hey Peers. I have been a certified peer support specialist since 2008 and I am so excited to see how the field has grown.

I am also trained and certified in Digital Peer Support and Supporting Older Adults Remotely. My most authentic credential is my lived experience.

I have 6 years experience working in a Forensic Treatment Facility and a State Hospital. I have been a facilitator for Support Groups Central. for 4 years. My personal challenges with mental health issues allow me to provide recovery skills in a variety of ways including individual peer coaching, online and in-person support group meetings, and providing Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) training. I know first hand the struggle of returning to the workforce after a mental health crisis. My areas of expertise include Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC), the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), Social Security, and Medicaid and Medicare issues.

My Recovery Story

My quality of life is dramatically different today than it was 15 years ago. I have utilized many wellness tools along the way and had the support of some wonderful people. I could not have done this alone and am grateful for all I have experienced in my life.

My Motivation To Help

Peer support has been instrumental in my own recovery. I think I was born an advocate and have always been the type of person who desires to help others. Now with peer support I can help others going through struggles similar to my own.
