My name is Heather and I have been in recovery since January 11, 2007.
I am so proud to be raising two incredible human beings in recovery who have taught me how big love can actually be.
Much of my life was “a low point”, but it accelerated with time as it does. My last and lowest of lows was the day after a night out. I was incredibly sick and hungover. My daughters were 2 years old and 9 months at the time. My now, former husband had to take the day off work to take care of them while I laid in bed sick and full of self-loathing. My 2-year-old came into my room because she wanted to play. She looked up at me and in her eyes was love, caring, honesty, a certain knowing I can’t explain and a complete lack of judgment. She looked into my soul and said “mama’s sick”.
That was the moment of clarity for me. I have been sober since that moment.
Everyday, my goals are to help someone in need of recovery and give back what was given to me. To be a voice that reduces the shame and stigma around addiction and trauma. To show people there is a better way, a solution.
I am beyond grateful to work in the field of addiction and recovery and to guide others the best I can to find their path on this journey.
