In this episode, our team member Kelly Fitzgerald Junco, speaks with Emily about her journey to find recovery, the different pathways that worked for her, and how she found and met the needs of moms looking to get sober during the pandemic.
Emily wears many hats and candidly discusses how she became an entrepreneur, an author, and a TEDx speaker, none of which she would have been able to do without leaving alcohol behind.
