Recognizing Jay Springer as a SHE RECOVERS Gem

Jay Springer is a SHE RECOVERS volunteer co-host for our SHE RECOVERS Together Online Gatherings and engages the SRT community further with daily posts inviting people to share their self-care, reminding us that self-love is paramount to our well-being. 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 Jay Springer about her role as a SHE RECOVERS Volunteer.

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

SHE RECOVERS empowers and supports women on their journeys of recovery. I am honored to be a part of it.

What made you want to become a She Recovers Foundation Volunteer?

SHE RECOVERS is changing lives! As women recover, they become empowered to help the people around them. The potential for healing is unlimited!

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

I came into recovery about five years ago from having an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. After putting down the alcohol, I realized that I had just been using it to self-medicate, and I was actually in recovery for anxiety, depression, grief, feelings of not being enough, and feeling terminally unique. I have tried anything and everything suggested to me in my recovery journey. Some practices have stayed with me and some I have let go. It’s a process. Lately, I have been enjoying meditation, journaling, using candles and incense, walks, and Sat Kriya (Kundalini yoga). Recovery from drinking alcohol was one of the only things that I have not been able to accomplish alone, and I am so grateful for that…I have met so many incredible people along the way!💖

What three words would your friends or fellow volunteers use to describe you?

Energetic, woo, & positive

How do these aspects of who you are show up in your everyday life?

I have magical daily practices that help me live my best life. I bloom where I am planted (post master of a small prairie community). I am going to Croatia this spring to run a half marathon with some other inspiring women from SHE RECOVERS!

What is something of which you are proud?

My recovery. My daily practices. My relationships with family and friends. Remaining open to new growth opportunities.

What do you do outside of your volunteer role for work and/or play?

I am a Post Master with Canada Post. I enjoy connecting with family and friends. I travel. I love walks in nature with my dogs.

What does radical self-love look like for you?

It can be as simple as a walk or a bubble bath. It can be as luxurious as a retreat. I am intentional about some form of self-care daily.

What or who is inspiring you right now?
