I am Native American (Cherokee) born and raised in Eastern Kentucky and I am 55 years old. I am a US Army Veteran who served our country from 1983 to 1986.I currently own a painting company, Artistic Touch.
My journey in recovery began in 1989, when I came to Louisville for treatment. My recovery has taken many roads over the years, but I am proud to say that I have been clean and sober for over 18 years. I have called New Albany home for 17 of those years.
My life is full with living today, I love my animals, fishing, riding my harley, cooking, canning, and attending concerts. I'm a mentor in Veterans Court in Floyd and Clark County, as well as doing workshops for both women and men on inner child issues.
I believe that even if I could help someone all day long every day for rest of my life , I still could never pay back all the help that has been so freely given to me through out my 31 years in my recovery.
**Disclaimer: I can't dance a lick. I have two left feet , but I sure can make a mean blackberry cobbler!!! Thank you for the opportunity to help others.
