Our Recovery Team ...

We have 11 dedicated staff members with an average of 4 years service at either Alpha Oaks or Cornerstone. Eight are Certified Alcoholism and Other Addictions Recovery Specialists at levels I or II. They provide 7 day a week support services to our detox and recovery residents.

Over the past 45 years I have been actively engaged in the business world. On a more personal level, I have a passion for service in the field of alcohol and drug recovery. To that end, I’ve been honored to serve on the Board of Directors at ARPW for over ten years. During these years, I have witnessed the life changing results to be found in ARPW’s treatment program at its Alpha Oaks and Cornerstone facilities. I feel privileged to serve on the Board as Alpha Oaks and Cornerstone continue to bring hope into the lives of the women they serve.

I have had the privilege of being part of the team at ARPW since 1994. I am an alumni of Alpha Oaks and have served on the Board of Directors of California Association of Addiction Recovery Resources. The bonuses in my job are the successes of the women. I feel I am only as good as my staff and that I need to assure and maintain our facilities to help those women in need. It is important that staff and myself are role models.

Over the last 43 years, I have worked in the field of substance abuse recovery in California. I have management oversight responsibility for Gateway Foundation, a residential program for Women, and Sacramento Recovery House , a residential program for men.

I am active on the Board of ARPW because I value the long standing professionalism and dedication of the staff here.
