This week I was honored to be named one of eight 'People to Watch' by Columbus ALIVE.
This was an important moment for me personally.
The story reads authentic, more personal than any I have ever read about my struggles, my work and my commitment to our community.
And the need is great to shine a light on 'Recovery Deserts,' a project I started to define, map and identify where treatment and recovery access is needed most.
Though I am humbled to be the 'person,' it is not only about me. All of my work is the work of a team and our growing community. I am grateful to these leaders for helping our community using their creative knowledge skill-sets.
Thank you. I am grateful, honored, and open to what the world has to offer and how I can continue to help the world!
