How long have you been associated with Wings and what is your history here?
I first came to Wings in 2008, when my family moved to Marysville, to attend 12 step meetings and the ceramics class. Shortly after, I volunteered my time and began teaching the ceramics class. In 2011 I began working for Maryhaven as a case aide at the T house which included the I’m Home residents at Wings. In January of 2014, I was offered the House Manager position for a new Women’s Recovery House (Buckeye Village) the MHRB was starting. In July of 2014 we were given the Hudson House, a recovery house for men. Managing both properties is my current position at Wings.
