Mrs. Vermont Selected to speak at Rally4Recovery in Providence, RI – Sept 21, 2013

Okay, so this is the part where I’m not all that into tooting my own horn or making this stuff “all about me”.  But people are asking me what I’m up to, and there are a few new, exciting events this month that I’ve been asked to be a part of!

I was excited to just attend this event down in RI, and then be a Torchbearer….but NOW they want me to SPEAK!  It’s a quick little 3 minute address (great, so people don’t fall asleep on my watch, lol) and man, is the lineup impressive.

Crazy humbled to be included!!!

Addictive substances & behaviors devastate the lives of millions of Americans every day. I was one of them, and I now share my story of escape, and the miracles of hope and joy in long-term recovery that has repaired my family and given us a new lease on life.
