She started her journey in recovery in Tampa, Fl., and in 2008, while volunteering with dogs in the Humane Society, realized how therapeutic animals are and how it helped her in her own recovery.

At Steps to Peace & Purpose, Nannette incorporates both her life experience and professional credentials in bi-weekly group therapy meetings, facilitating a strong connection to 12-step recovery programs.
