As a scholar of addiction recovery, she helps to improve the recovery landscape for adolescents, especially young women, across the country.
She is the Program Manager at RISE TOGETHER; a program that is progressively encouraging our youth to stand up for what they believe in, no matter what it is. Rise Together’s vision is to create a community where our youth are heard, loved, and inspired to live in hope. It is Nadine’s message of finding purpose, loving yourself & neighbor, having courage, and knowing what it means to be vulnerable that is making a long-lasting, positive difference, in individuals and throughout the community.
Over the past 2 years she has been able to speak to 1,000’s of people across the nation in a variety of settings. In doing so, with her servant leadership and solid advocacy philosophy she has helped create social change while educating students, teachers, professionals, and peers on topics of substance use and misuse, mental health awareness, leadership, and the development of life skills.
She carries this responsibility with a great amount of passion & purpose in hopes that these efforts will help to not only develop peer leaders but also help save the lives of our nation’s youth.
