Hi! My name is Kristi. I have been in recovery since March 10, 2019. I have been with Sobriety First since September 8, 2021. I am a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist. As a Peer Recovery Specialist, I am able to assist individuals who are seeking recovery to find and use their values, assets and strengths to support their recovery journey as a peer with lived experience with addiction, a role model, a mentor, an advocate and a motivator/cheerleader/encourager! I am available to meet with individuals 1:1, accompany individuals to recovery support meetings and other events, or to meet for coffee when they just need someone to talk to. There is a quote that says "Do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life", and that's where I am at working for Sobriety First. Being surrounded by others in the recovery community and having personal goals in life keep me walking on my own recovery path.
In my time outside of work, I am very involved in my church community, helping lead our Searching Souls Ministries and All Addictions Anonymous Ministry and being a certified Spiritual Companion. I enjoy attending AA meetings, beekeeping, making rosaries, and riding bicycle. I have 3 grown daughters and 9 grandchildren.
