As the Planner for the 2017 Women’s Recovery Conference : Keys to Sustaining Recovery, I received numerous comments from participants who loved your Keynote as well as your detailed breakout session titled, Recovery Road Trip: Keys to the Car, where you shared priceless recovery and relapse prevention wisdom. As a psychotherapist, clinical addiction specialist and conference planner, I was impressed by your unique ability to share genuine recovery experience, to offer hope within the most harrowing of circumstances, and to skillfully combine it with professional knowledge and expertise. I’d like to add that your skill as a comedian engaged the audience at the most unexpected times — you wove in stories that grasped everyone’s attention on a serious note, only to leave them almost falling out of with laughter as they identified with common human phobias. I watched you effortlessly draw people together, while warming hearts with honest, irresistible humor.
