I grew up in Knightstown Indiana with my grandparents, Caley and Martha Wyatt. They faithfully took me to jazz, drama, tap, & singing lessons every Tuesday for eight years. I loved the performing arts and did plays and musicals at the Guyer Opera House in Lewisville & with the Knightstown United Methodist Church. However, volleyball became my passion. I was among the leading defensive specialists in the state of Indiana in 2003 and my Varsity team was ranked No. 3 in the state along with being the White River Athletic Conference Champions. I got to carry a wreath for Fallen Soldiers at Changing of The Guards in Washington D.C., and when Hurricane Katrina hit I served on a relief team with my youth group. I also went to NYC right after 9/11, seeing the devastation at Ground Zero. I did all this before I became 18.
During my senior year of high school, I started using drugs and alcohol. My relationship with loved ones went to the wayside, and I acted as if I hadn't been raised with Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I thought all hope was gone for me. For twenty years, I carried on in this hopeless state of mind and body. At the age of 37, God saw fit to place me at The BreakAway & I came back to Life. Because of the program & the loving care of the staff and mentors, I was able to gain sobriety for 15 months. I will continue down the path that I am on now. My life is getting back to how it used to be before I started using. Today I am the chair of The BreakAway Alumae, I serve dinner at St. Paul church on Wednesdays with Uplift Them, Inc. I also get to be a sponsor to Women in Sobriety. My job is at Bethlehem Packaging and they are very supportive of my endeavor with The BreakAway. My dream is to own a company with my husband Brian where we can do lawncare from sun up to sun down! My favorite thing to do is spend time with my daughter Ryan having fun!
