Lauri Leonardson: Peer Support

My name is Lauri Leonardson and I am a grandmother to 20 amazing grandchildren.  My beautiful daughters have given me so much joy and I love them for that. I was given the opportunity to take a class to become a  Peer Support Specialist . Trying to get through my own recovery, I  worried that I wouldn't be able to help those in need. I have been a Peer Support Specialist now since July of 2018.  This has been the most rewarding position that I have ever had.  It is a pleasure to work with  people of Willow Sage Services and the Peer Suppot Team I am with.
