Program Coordinator



My name is Jennifer Brawn and I have been in recovery since 2007. I enjoy sports. Both Football and Soccer are my passion.  


I have dedicated my life to helping people. I have worked with people with disabilities for 8 years. Later on, I decided that I wanted to change fields and help people in recovery.


I try to live my life every day by trying to be better than I was the day before.
