My current role is Recovery Navigator for St. Lucie County, Florida. I am creating and maintaining linkages between addiction service providers and the workforce development community.

My background includes over 30 years of experience in for-profit businesses and philanthropic organizations creating programs and resources that connect individuals with diverse career goals towards gainful employment. As Senior Director of Social Enterprise at The Lord’s Place, Inc. in West Palm Beach, Florida for the past ten years my entrepreneurial spirit contributed to building alliances with funding sources from private, public, and government resources that resulted in targeted vocational and job training for program participants. I was instrumental in the growth and expansion of The Lord’s Place Social Enterprise programs and business development through the creation, implementation, and management of comprehensive employment programs for formerly homeless and ex-offender participants. I  am deeply committed to making a positive impact on the lives of homeless people and those returning from incarceration as well others with barriers to employment.
