Lauren Periman

I’m currently working as the female recovery mentor at NPFS while completing my CADC I-R certification. I have a Bachelor degree in Exercise Sport Science and Kinesiology and Associates of Applied Science/Public Health degree. I have worked as a  Licensed Practical Nurse and a Certified Nursing Assistant, Certified Phlebotomy Tech., Personal Trainer and Yoga Instructor. What I learned from all that experience is that I’m passionate about working with people and helping them to live a happy and healthy life. My personal experience with people struggling with addiction led me to pursue this role as a mentor. 

I love being outside and exploring new places.  When I can I take my dogs with me to go “adventuring”, they’re my favorite things in the world.  I try my best to be positive everyday, especially when it’s hard! “You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
