3. What is the role of recovery coaches at Oliver-Pyatt Centers?
Recovery coaches are the eyes, ears, and timekeepers of Oliver-Pyatt Centers as well as the staff in the trenches with our clients. We provide the women with support and loving boundaries.

4. What is your favorite thing about Oliver-Pyatt Centers and working as a head recovery coach?
My favorite thing about Oliver-Pyatt Centers is being able to provide support for our women. Often times all that involves is playing a game (usually bananagrams) or being able to sit with them and listen. What I love most about being a head recovery coach is being involved in the meetings; I love being a part of the team discussions that take place as we look for creative ways to support and aid our women.

My grandfather was a Chinese immigrant in the Dominican Republic. I have nine stepbrothers and sisters. I like to practice yoga on my days off.
