“Volunteering with SHE RECOVERS Foundation for me is about reciprocity, embodying my values, and co-creating a legacy of social change.” – Carrie Potter, SHE RECOVERS Volunteer

Recognizing Carrie Potter as a SHE RECOVERS Gem

SHE RECOVERS team member for Design & Community Support, Carrie Potter is also a volunteer co-host for our SHE RECOVERS Together Online Gatherings and Trauma-Informed Yoga. She has been volunteering for the Foundation for three years and has been recently recognized as a SHE RECOVERS Gem.

SHE RECOVERS Gems are volunteers who have been acknowledged by their peers for their profound and life-altering contributions and service to our community.

We had the honor of interviewing Carrie about her role as a SHE RECOVERS Volunteer.

What does being a SHE RECOVERS Foundation Volunteer mean to you?

Volunteering with SRF for me is about reciprocity, embodying my values, and co-creating a legacy of social change.

Why did you decide to become a SHE RECOVERS Foundation Volunteer?

The SRT Zoom Gatherings met me where I was at. It became a space for me to practice softening and felt like home for all my parts.

What or who is inspiring you right now?

Reading Mama Dawn’s new book, SHE RECOVERS Every Day, is my daily reminder of how aligned I feel on my journey right now.

What SHE RECOVERS Intention & Guiding Principle resonates with you the most right now?

Recovery is a journey to wholeness. We learn to take care of our body, mind, emotions & spirit.

What is your favorite SHE RECOVERS resource?

Oh gosh, so many faves:

What is one piece of advice you would give to another woman/non-binary individual who is seeking a community like SHE RECOVERS?

You don’t have to do it alone.

Tell us a little bit about your recovery journey. What tools and resources do you weave into your patchwork of recovery? 

Grieving the loss of my mother led me to seek recovery from substance use and recovery led me to transform the relationship I had with my body, my finances, my work, and my purpose. I celebrated six years of freedom from alcohol recently, and I keep my toolkit fresh with dance parties in my kitchen, trauma-informed yoga, qigong, acupressure, audiobooks, podcasts…and so much more!
