About Me

I trounced rectal cancer for the 2nd time in the past 3 years with God, a mighty community and incredible advanced science. OVERCOMING is now my obsession - and we will!

Before cancer, I spent the past fifteen years as a lifelong mission to share my experience of substance abuse recovery to as many people as possible! So far, thousands have seen me as a speaker, author, sober coach and radio/TV broadcaster.

In 2013, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse awarded me their "Gateway Award" for carrying my message of recovery out to communities. I am most grateful for my years working in classrooms, as a member of Supporting Teens At Risk (S.T.A.R.). That experience motivated me to create a comprehensive online course, which takes parents through the process of utilizing their crucial role in helping their children avoid drug experimentation.

"Arm Your Child To Be Drug Free with 5 Simple Actions" just passed over 800 students in 71 countries. It's my goal to reach a million parents to support them in knowing they are doing all they can to keep their kids safe from risky behavior.
