As a PAARI Recovery Corps alumni and woman in long-term recovery, Ursel rejoined the PAARI team as a staff member in 2020. Ursel works alongside the Boston Police Department’s Street Outreach Unit as a Recovery Coach. Ursel has over 8 years of in-patient treatment experience and through PAARI she became certified as a recovery coach to continue her passion in helping people. Through her fulfilling experience with PAARI’s AmeriCorps program, Ursel was able to build on her passion, meet many people, sharpen old skills, and build new ones. Ursel continues this passion through helping women with substance use disorders, and she especially loves working with pregnant and postpartum mothers in early recovery. Together, they build ways to maintain sobriety and advocate for themselves through DCF and in court systems, and reuniting with their children and families. In her free time Ursel loves to spend time with her two daughters, who keep her young. Ursel can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
