Today we are celebrating Kelsey Amos, Program Coordinator, who works in our Social Detox program. Kelsey joined our team in November of this year and we are so grateful to have her as part of the team!

How did The Magdalen House become part of your life?

I found Maggie’s through a friend who was Maggie’s alumna. She took me there for meetings when I first got sober. It has remained an awesome place to go to carry the message and be a part of the fellowship.

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

The biggest gift has been having a sense of purpose and direction in my life. My life before was futile, and sobriety has given me more than I could have ever imagined. I get to help other women today because I’ve been where they are, and I get to be an example of a woman who recovered from a hopeless state.

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

I would tell her that there is hope. If someone like me can recover and live the life I have today, then so can you. Just be honest, no matter what. And always ask for help.

What is your life like today?

My life today is fuller than I could have ever imagined. I have a close and loving relationship with my family. I get to show up for my family and friends. I am active in my home group, sponsoring other women, and carrying the message to a treatment center. I am blessed beyond measure and grateful that someone shared their experience with me so that I can pass that along and help someone else.

About Kelsey Amos, Program Coordinator

When Kelsey got sober in 2016, her friend, a Maggie’s alumna, took her to meetings at The Magdalen House. She loves the spirit that lives in the House, a place that she has always felt welcome and at home.

Kelsey is honored to be a part of such a fantastic group of women seeking to help other alcoholic women. She actively sponsors and says yes to service at every opportunity. She believes that she owes her life to the women in sobriety that came before her, and now, her purpose is to give that back every chance she gets.
