Stick with the Winners! – 

Nov. 17, 2020 – I  am so Grateful to be Clean and Sober! Through the darkness of my addictions I finally found the Surrender that has allowed me to access a Power outside of myself that gives my life purpose, direction, and passion!

My dream of helping those that suffer from addiction started 20 plus years ago when I was working with the indigenous people in the villages of Alaska. I feel blessed to have come Full Circle through God’s Divine Intervention. My husband and I opened Hower Lodge in August of 2017. We stand front line in the battles and beside the Warriors. The incredible reality is this: The worst experiences in my past are now my greatest strengths. We are uniquely qualified to help the sufferer because we have been to the Abyss.

We look forward to meeting new friends on our journey!

Q. If you are in recovery, what was your Drug of Choice? and when did you stop using?
A. My DOC was Alcohol and Heroin. I stopped using Heroin May 1, 1995. I stopped using everything August 15, 2013.

Q. Do you think addiction is an illness, disease, a choice or a wicked twist of fate.
A. Hahaha – wicked twist of fate! I believe it is a disease following many years of research.

Q. Do you log on to ZOOM 12-step meetings? How often? Do you share?
A. At the beginning of Covid I did a Zoom every night. I fell off and now I don’t do any Zoom. I am back to attending live meetings.
