I am excited to announce the newest Speaker for the FREE Navigating the World of Addiction Event on May 6th in Littleton, CO. Katie is the mother of Britany Sherfield……one of our other Speakers at the event. They will be speaking as a team and then have Q&A to follow the sharing of their journey.
Katie has spent over the last 20 years in the marketing, events and communications industry. After experiencing the addiction journey with her daughter Brittany, Katie left her marketing career, in order to focus on family recovery. She has now dedicated her life to guiding others through the overwhelming process of finding quality treatment for substance abuse, coaching families through their own recovery, and a consultant for the treatment industry. Katie is the Executive Vice President of the nonprofit FAN-Families Against Narcotics, on the Executive Committee for a Michigan opiate task force Operation Rx, and a national speaker on addiction. Katie is also one of the leading forces behind the creation of Hope Not Handcuffs. Katie is a professionally trained and certified family recovery coach as well as an addictions recovery coach. Katie has been a featured author/blogger for national advocacy groups in addition to being interviewed on Fox, ABC, NBC, The Fix, Overcoming Addiction Radio, as well as numerous media sources. Katie and her daughter Brittany also co-founded a blog, where they dig deep about their journey at www.amothersaddictionjourney.com, which reached over a million views and seen in 146 countries within 30 days of its inception and has been syndicated in over 30 publications, including USA Today and The Sober World magazine. Katie lives with her husband John, and their youngest daughter Brooke in Macomb Twp, MI.
