Gloria Daniels

Lead Recovery Coach

I am Gloria, a person in recovery.  To me, that means working on changing attitudes, people, places, and things. I have learned that regaining self-respect and self- esteem and believing in the journey brings many rewards.  Being in recovery is an everyday adventure, full of wonderful gifts of acceptance and belonging!

Dom Smith

Recovery Coach

My name is Dominique and I am in long term REDISCOVERY. My journey began 04/19/2013 and I have not looked back since, As I grow throughout my rediscovery I have the opportunity to give back what I took away from family, friends and most important myself. I am grateful for waking up every morning; I hope I can help others enjoy life alcohol and drug free.

Katrina Benson

Continuing Care Specialist

Hi, My name is Katrina. I am the Continuing Care Specialist in Saint Mary's County Maryland. I enjoy assisting others in and out of my Community. I love traveling, eating fine cuisine, shopping, and making others laugh. My favorite color is purple, and my favorite fragrance is Eucalyptus. I enjoy moments of serenity and solace. And though I love nature, I dislike bugs. I have learned many things while working in the Behavioral Health Field. This experience has assisted me with the tools necessary to properly educate Peers who come into our Office for services. This experience has also assisted me personally and with my loved ones. My job is very rewarding, and I look forward to what beholds my future in this field.
