by | Jan 2, 2022 | #Women, First Step

Please join us in celebrating Charlene McPherson, Programs Coordinator for The Magdalen House team! Charlene moved from Tennessee to Texas about three years ago and it led her to finding a passion for recovery at Maggie’s. We are so grateful to have her on our team as a Program Coordinator!

1. What led you to want to work at The Magdalen House?

Maggie’s saved my life and I want to help other women.

For staff members in recovery, we like to ask a few additional questions:

How did The Magdalen House become part of your life?

I was a suffering alcoholic woman and Maggie’s saved my life.

What has been the biggest gift to you in your recovery?

The biggest gift was to gain the spiritual tools I need to stay sober.

What would you tell the woman who is newly sober, or still trying to get sober?

Don’t give up!

What is your life like today?

My life is even better than I could have imagined. I attend meetings, have commitments and carry the message.

2. As a team member, what are do you love about Maggie’s?

I am always excited to be working with the woman who join First Step. I feel very honored and blessed.

3. What’s something we should know about you?

I am married to my best friend. We connected again on facebook after 37 years and have been married for three years. We have three fur babies. Grace is our four-year-old german shepard, Max is our two-year-old male german shepard and the newest addition is Missy, a one-year-old Malchi who only weighs five pounds but is the boss of the other two. ????
