While in the staffing industry, I coached, trained, hired and developed agency recruiters and sales staff. I managed the strategic development of eager candidates seeking employment, assisted students and adults preparing for a career path, coached the “return to work mom” and guided the forced retiree in their career transition.
Over this tenure, my volunteer work included and has not been limited to Founder/Past President of MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Putnam County). member of The Mission Church in Holmes, NY as a Facilitator with Breaking Free Ministry, a teacher in the Children’s Ministry. My current volunteer time is joyfully donated to a non-profit I have partnered with, Unshattered….a great opportunity to work with women who have a second chance in life and have rid the chains of addiction.
In addition, I have 20+ years of working with women in recovery from substance abuse and alcoholism.
I host weekly national coaching calls, as well as facilitate quarterly workshops on Personal Development, Self-Esteem and Empowerment. Some of the motivational topics I cover during my weekly calls include Self-Discipline, Self-Development, Setting/Keeping Goals, Leadership, The Excuse Party is Over, Adapting to Change, Turning Fear into Power, Are You Coachable? and Power of Decision and Commitment.
Addictions are not limited to alcohol and substance abuse. I work closely with women who have found themselves powerless over shopping, sex, gambling, relationships, social media, food and other unhealthy behavior. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, let me help you. I know…I’ve been there.
Unshattered is a nonprofit social enterprise employing women who are winning their fight against addiction.
The women of Unshattered make handbags and other textile products out of repurposed items and other high-quality, donated materials. These products are tangible representations of the transformation occurring in their lives. The process of taking pieces of discarded materials and turning them into beautiful handbags helps our artists discover the power of true change, that wholeness can be returned to something once broken.
Unshattered's mission is to give women who are winning the fight against addiction a path forward to economic independence and sustained sobriety.
