Founder and Chief Development Officer
Founder and Chief Development Officer, Cathy Plush, understands firsthand the importance of community involvement in the recovery process. As a woman in long-term recovery she has made it her work to promote recovery by educating about substance use disorder and the hope of healing.
Her passion is to make SRC’s mission understood in the community one step at a time. She values interpersonal relationships and feels that it is important to make people feel valued, whether they are old friends or first time acquaintances, and this is especially important for interactions with those who may be in times of distress. She values loyalty, trustworthiness, and caring, and she is a firm believer that one person can be an agent of change.
