Recovery Coach and Smart Recovery Facilitator
On his own path to recovery, Thomas sees himself as a peer, an advocate, and an ally to those seeking recovery. A lifelong New Englander, he is a father and a husband, with two children. He also likes to build things with stone. “Something about the strength, weight, and permanence. It speaks to me.”
Olivia is having an amazing 50th year. She has a funky family that is the center of her life. She was a chef and entrepreneur in the food world since college but made a 180 turn that led her to her job at Turning Point. She drinks caffeine in the morning with her husband, drives her two teenage boys around, and gardens like a fool from mud season to Thanksgiving. LIfe is good.
Jason is the Volunteer Coordinator at Turning Point and also a Recovery Coach. He is dedicated to helping others find their path to recovery.
