Hi, I'm Jeanna, a recovering alcoholic and survivor of childhood sexual abuse. There was a time when I thought I had a wonderful life, but I was miserable. I started drinking to relieve myself of the emptiness, loneliness, and boredom, but I quickly lost everything. In February 2018, my son committed suicide. I felt so much shame in that. For the next seven months, I drank as hard as I could. Then something shifted. One morning I woke up really scared of who I had become. I haven’t had a drink since. Ten days after getting sober, I a self-discovery trip. Something amazing happened that weekend. I went to an AA meeting on the beach. During the meeting, someone said that his experience was a gift given to him so that he could give that gift to others. That’s when I knew what I would do. I would become an online sober coach, so I could help women like me recover from trauma and alcoholism. Today, I live free from alcohol, free from self-hatred, and free from that empty lonely feeling. I have recovered from a big chunk of my past and found a purpose–one that gives meaning to the trauma I had to face. For the first time in my life, I feel whole. My mission is to help you feel the same.
