Care Coordinator/Case Manager
I started within Coram Deo as a resident in 2014 after completing a 30 day program. After some time passed I was hired as a property manager for the sober homes for a short time in 2015. As I worked in the homes I realized my passion was to provide advocacy and support to the women in the homes. Being in recovery from addiction and mental health myself I felt a connection and wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. This is when I decided to enroll in Recovery University in order to earn my Recovery Support Specialist certification through Advocacy Unlimited, Inc. I graduated in December of 2015 and have been providing Care Coordination Services to individuals and families since. In 2020 I earned my Certified Peer Recovery Specialist certification with the Connecticut Certification Board, along with many other certifications that I have had the opportunity to learn and earn along the way. I am knowledgeable in state systems of care and legislative advocacy and have started my path at Goodwin University to earn my associates degree in Human Services. I have 4 daughters and one furry son named Jack, who I have been blessed to have for 17 years. I believe in hope, an attitude of gratitude and that with God all things are possible. My mission is to be the best Care Coordinator I can be and provide the services necessary for the women to thrive, not just survive!
