Jose Luna 

Peer Recovery Coach - Bilingual/Spanish

Jose grew up surrounded by violence and tragic losses. In his own family, he suffered a great deal of emotional pain from the absence of his father and grandfather. To heal his pain, he turned to drugs and alcohol. When his mother suggested he become a recovery coach, he enrolled to get certified and after the first class put down the substances and he has been clean ever since.

Amanda Johnson

Peer Recovery Coach

With recovery, I am able to provide a safe, healthy, loving home free from chaos caused by addiction for my children. As I became a healthy individual in recovery, I knew that there was nothing more that I wanted to do with my life than to help other people who have also experienced the hopelessness and emptiness of substance use disorder.  I have worked with at risk youth, survivors of sexual assault and human trafficking, adult SUD and behavioral health. I started my career in behavior health at the bottom as a front line staff and have held just about every position from there to Interim Executive Director. Now, as a CCAR-certified coach with HardBeauty I have the opportunity to really stand with people - by their side - as they build lives for themselves in recovery. It is both an honor and a joy.

Prescillia Wells

Recovery Coach/Harm Reduction Specialist

With a long line of addicts with severe mental disorders on one side and alcoholism on the other, Prescillia grew up watching addiction take its toll on her family. She lost her mother to addiction and her brother to suicide. When drug use led to her children being taken away, she signed up for coaching and got clean. She is sober now, has her children with her and is thriving professionally and personally. Prescillia works primarily with parents with substance use disorders who have lost their children to custody or DCF/CPS cases because of their active addiction and mental health issues. She also specializes in working with people interested in MAT (medically assisted treatment).

 

“We are not meant to do this alone. I want to give back; to use my experience to support others who are struggling with similar things with care and compassion. I am here to empower people to be their own heroes.”

Kimberly Schraud

Peer Recovery Coach 

Recovery has given me a life I would’ve never imagined. I entered into recovery at 33 after hitting my bottom. My only hope was to just stop drinking and using, I got so much more than that, I learned how to live. I believe in, and I am truly amazed by HardBeauty’s mission.  I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of something so groundbreaking.

Rachel Bowen

Recovery Coach and Navigator 

I suffered from SUD and mental health issues for years, starting when I was 15 years old. As an adult, I ended up in the hospital one too many times. When I got home from my final visit to the hospital and started to really get my brain focused again. I knew this was a life or death decision and I chose life! I have been very diligently working on my recovery path while educating myself on helping others in their journey to recovery. I had the help of a Recovery Coach and it sent me on an amazing journey of hope, healing, love, compassion, open mindedness and community.  Now, I would love to walk along side you on your journey in hopes to maybe help smooth out a few of the bumps on the road to recovery.
