Connections and Confidence as a Recipe for Business Success

by Amy Mason and Pamela Wills

Recovery, Healing and Change: Why I Love My Work

by Michelle Olem

I am a clinician specializing in addictions and trauma.

I love my work.

I am incredibly grateful to all the clients who have trusted me enough to share their stories. I've had the opportunity to learn most of what I know about trauma, addiction and recovery from incredibly courageous survivors.

I did go to college and learned all the theory and approaches. And yes, all that information is in my software… but my inspiration comes from my clients.

The Story in the Numbers

by Sherri Mahoney-Battles

As a young girl I developed a love for reading. I read every book within reach devouring them at a rapid speed. At times, it seemed the library in my small town would run dry before my thirst could be quenched.

Certain authors drew me in, and I fell in love with the characters my imagination created, painting rich scenes in my head that no actress, movie, or television show could ever compete with.

People often comment on my career choice, confident I suffer through my days surrounded by piles of paperwork and dry numbers in a state of misery. Clients are often apologetic for dumping their tax and financial disasters into my hands unaware of my eagerness to dig through their boxes and files.

You see, for me it's always been about the stories.
