Stick with the Winners! –
Ahbra Schiff is proud to be a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous, a mom, and part of Leonard Buschel’s Writer’s In Treatment, and the media produced under its auspices.“My life has changed because of sobriety and one of the best things I do now is to work with young women who are in the county’s juvenile detention centers.” This is not her first time in production as Ahbra is credited with co-producing her three amazing children, Joshua, 26, Jordyn, 23 and Ellie, 16 — a job which also allowed her to get her feet wet in Operations and Outreach. Prior to that, she studied at various citadels of higher education including Hobart/William Smith in Geneva, NY, UCLA, CSUN and both Pierce and Santa Monica City College—but she considers her alma mater to be Tarzana Treatment Center.
