Amy Jackson

Peer Support

Amy decided to pursue a career in behavioral health after being inspired by the example of recovery set by a Peer Support Specialist facilitating groups at the clinic where she received services. Amy graduated from Peer Employment Training through Recovery Innovations in 2009, and then spent several years employed by a peer run community service agency, where she held multiple positions during her employment. Amy's philosophy for recovery is to meet people where they are, and assist them in building their own path to where they want to be.

In her free time Amy enjoys playing with her cats, reading, photography and creating digital art.
