Hey friends. I want first to say thank you to my family & friends. My buddies in recovery and to all of the individuals that has helped me over the past several years since I reached out for help.  Never in my wildest dreams did I believe that when I started this journey that it would allow me the opportunity to experience so many things in my life.   
It wasn't long ago that this entire project would have ever been possible. I was 25 years young when I found myself at the crossroads of life.  For years I had an unhealthy relationship with alcohol, and yet I didn't know how to live my life without it.  April 16, 2014, will be a day that I will never forget. It was on that date I  started my journey towards the life I live today. Three short years later, on my sobriety date of April 16, 2017,, I walked away from the safety net I had built in my personal and professional life to start the S.V. Foundation & The Mocktail Project. 
If you don't believe that recovery is possible or that you can't ever live the life you want to live while in recovery trust me, you're not the first person to ever think that yourself.  
I was 25 years old when I had my last drink. I never thought I could walk back into a bar, restaurant, travel the world, go to another sporting event or a concert.  I had convinced myself that if there was alcohol involved, then I could not participate. 
Well, I am here to tell you that I was wrong.  When I started this journey, I purchased a van I named the voyager van and traveled all over this country. I challenged myself to go live a life I never thought was possible before my last drink. I marked off many personal bucket list items, participated in countless recovery events, and yes, I tried a lot of mocktails while attending concerts and sports events. 
For me, the one thing I am most proud of in my life is to now have the opportunity to give back to the community that has allowed me a second opportunity at the life I want to live.
