I am the Phase II Case Manager for Brighton Recovery Center for Women (BRC). My role consists of helping our residents create a transition plan for off-site living as they complete the program, as well as managing our Sober Living facility in Covington.
Brief description of what you do and program you are in:
At BRC we work with women who are recovering from Substance Use Disorder. I have the privilege of helping these wonderful, strong women write the next chapter of their lives by working with them through the final phase of our program as they transition into off-site living. I also get to work with some of our women after they complete BRC and move into our Sober Living facility.

It’s inspiring to watch our residents grow and develop their ability to be self-sufficient as they work the 12 steps and utilize the skills they learn in our program.

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of decorating and trying to catch up on some reading!

Your heart can’t be in the right place if your feet never move!
