Wanda’s favorite element about AHVAP is NETWORKING! She says, “When I began in the field, I had no idea what I was doing. AHVAP was rich with friendly people who were willing to share their experiences and take me under their wing.”
What’s one thing personal you’re willing to share?
I am blessed to be the wife of an amazing man, the mom of three teenagers, bonus-mom to three adults and nana to two grandchildren! I speak at events as an advocate for families of addicts and am in the process of writing a book outlining five steps to protecting yourself, your children, and your financial future when married to an addict. I feel extremely blessed to have survived the ordeal and emerge as an advocate for a forgotten group.
