Hi! Thanks for coming.
I’m Meghan, a Certified Peer Recovery Support Specialist, Certified Recovery Peer Advocate, Certified Addiction Recovery Coach and a Harm Reductionist. In these roles I’ve been supporting individuals examining their relationships with wellness since 2012 in diverse landscapes: hospitals, jails, schools, communities, private sector, Government Agencies, Non-profits and virtually.
As a Trainer/Consultant & Advocate of Peer Support and Harm Reduction, I’m committed to treating all humans with radical compassion and ending the racist War On Drugs. I love opportunities to teach people Overdose Prevention beyond Narcan and ways to support people who use drugs without the use of outdated and harmful punitive approaches.
My own process of wellness has led me to get curious about ancestral knowledge and the rhythms of nature. As a Certified Wild Mushroom Forager I enjoy sharing that knowledge, helping others to cultivate their sense of wonder for the earth and the healing available in wild spaces. Thanks so much for taking the time to learn more about me!
