Peers in Recovery Webinar with Leticia Chavez-Paulette & Peter Kim

Thursday, November 3

3-4:30 pm Eastern Time (starting 2pm CT, 1 MT, 12 PT)

Leticia Chavez-Paulette an over-comer, a woman in long-term recovery and a believer in Christ. Leticia grew up in poverty. She determined in her heart that she wanted more out of life at a very early age. She excelled in school and even served six years in the NM Army National Guard, but life took a wrong turn. She became addicted to cocaine and lost everything including her marriage and most importantly her parental rights to her only son. She spent years in prison – five of them behind bars. But God had other plans for her. 

In 2004, she was blessed to be used as an example of “change.” Her testimony was submitted to congress to implement Celebrate Recovery in prisons.  In November of 2005, she co-founded A Peaceful Habitation. She has been the executive director since it’s foundation and is involved in every aspect of the operations of the non-profit organization; from interviewing the prospective participants to implementing creative and evidence-based programming. APH, Inc. provides workshops, wellness services, mentorship, evidence and faith-based services for justice and marginalized women in NM.

Peter Kim is a former Colson Scholar from Wheaton College. Through the redemption of Christ, he turned a life of drugs into a tool for the Kingdom of God, by becoming a therapist. Peter went on from Wheaton College to the University of Chicago, where he received a Masters in Social Work with a clinical concentration on substance use counseling. He graduated with Summa Cum Laude honors. He is a recent dad of twins who were born a few months before graduating grad school.

Peter is currently a therapist at the residential addictions department at Northwest Community Hospital and also does teletherapy for a Christ-centered counseling company on the side. Peter’s dream is to be a therapist in the prison setting to help those in the carceral setting where he was saved.
