Leandra is a 27-year-old college student with almost 2 years in recovery. “I was using drugs for several years, I lost my kids, my home, and any self-worth. I always knew what the problem was, I just didn’t know how to fix it.” After overdosing and being deceased for more than 17 min, Leandra knew that she had a purpose and that purpose was to help others. Leandra states although she grateful for the life she lives today she wishes that she would have made different choices and that she had someone who introduced the life of recovery at an earlier age. Her hope is to share her experience with teens who are going through what she went through and be a positive person in their lives that inspires hope and change. “Being in recovery is not always easy, but my worst day clean will ALWAYS be better than my best day high.”
When Leandra is not being of service to her fellowship or helping others, she enjoys riding her Harley with her husband, fishing, camping, playing with her dog Nala (who truly believes she is a baby) and enjoying all the other gifts that recovery has given to her.
