My name is Amy. I’ve worked in the field in one capacity or another for about 10 years. I have certifications in mental health and substance use. I’m the team lead for an assisted outpatient treatment team for the LMHA (local mental health authority) in my town. I’m a contract trainer for an organization that trains other mental health peer specialists along with endorsement trainings within the state of Texas. I have a few diagnoses myself and have learned to navigate my mental wellness challenges and lead a productive life. I’m passionate about my recovery, life, my family, friends, and learning new things. I enjoy riding horses, supporting people facing challenging times, and having fun in life!
