Meet Our Team
Justina is a person in long term recovery from substance use disorder and mental health challenges. She has worked very hard on herself over the last 6 years. Since losing the father of her kids to a fatal overdose, she has made it her mission to help others like her find that there is hope. She is very honored to be a part of the Café and show people that there is hope and life can get better if you’re willing to take one step in front of the other.
Justina is certified as a Community Health Worker, Certified Recovery Specialist, CAPRC 2, and is currently working on her Supervisor for Peer Recovery Coaches. She enjoys using her skill set to pave a way for others like her to see that recovery is possible. Her favorite part of her role in the café is to see that connection is the opposite of addiction. When people find connection, they start finding their purpose and that is when change starts to happen.
Outside of the Café, Justina is a wife to a hardworking man, and a mama to 4 beautiful and unique children. She enjoys playing with her kids, doing crafts, and taking time for herself to practice self-care. She is a huge advocate for people in recovery and enjoys working alongside them to offer what was so freely given to her.
