Long Island Chapter

Long Island Chapter

We realized at our recent event in NYC (October 12th) that we really do have a lot of women in our community living BOTH on Long Island and in NYC. We want to support you all to connect and support, empower one another as part of the SHE RECOVERS movement.

SHE RECOVERS is an international movement of women in or seeking recovery from a wide variety of issues, including substance use and addiction, eating disorders, trauma, codependency, loss and other life challenges. SHE RECOVERS creates welcoming spaces and transformative opportunities – on and offline – to connect, support and empower recovering women.

This group is intended for women aged 18 and older (open to all who self identify as a woman)

It is envisioned that to begin with, women will connect for coffee dates, hikes or other free or pay-your-own way events!

Chapter Chair:

Heather Taylor

After getting sober in 2018 and working through “all the things”, I discovered my passion for working with women in recovery. I am a weekly host for the Sober Mom Squad, a Holistic Life Coach, a SHE RECOVERS Designated Coach and the proud Chapter Lead of the SHE RECOVERS Long Island Chapter, one of the two founding chapters. I am extremely fortunate to be working with amazing women at both the local and national levels to create the Long Island SHE RECOVERS chapter which will provide an in person experience for women to connect, support each other and to feel empowered in their recovery journey. I believe that change, healing and transformation are a process, not an event and that connection with other like-minded women through that process is the foundation for discovering all of the potential within you.

Development & Fundraising Lead:

Colleen Kearney

I have been fundraising since 1999. My first ever fundraiser was the Avon 3-Day walk for breast cancer. My mother is a survivor so the cause was near and dear to my heart. I participated and raised money for 4 3-day walks, participated in numerous Team in Training events (marathons, century rides, etc.) and Cycle for Survival. Most recently I sponsored a Facebook fundraiser for SHE RECOVERS which raised over $5,000 from a simple post and outreach for those not on Facebook. Over the years I have raised close to $100,000. I am motivated to fundraise for the causes that are most impactful to me and am grateful to all my friends and loved ones for their generosity in sponsoring me.

Events & Community Engagement Lead:

Dara Meyer

I have been part of the SHE RECOVERS team since the co-founders wanted to do an event “on the ground” for the first time in NYC. I was introduced to Dawn and Taryn and we quickly hit it off. Then of course I met my better half, Payton Kennedy- the other event producer. In our first year we did not receive the money anticipated but we were able to pull the event off and the women of the community were very happy. I then went on to help produce SHE RECOVERS in LA and SHE RECOVERS in Miami. Being able to produce an event that benefited so many women in recovery truly brought me to a new place in creating events.

Finance & Accounting Lead:

Rose Ott

As a second term (each term is 2 years) Secretary/Treasurer for the National Kitchen and Bath Association Manhattan Chapter, I understand the role and responsibilities of recording, budgeting and banking. Furthermore, I have my own business and manage several rental properties which also involve these functions. I am trustworthy, reliable and detail oriented which serves this role well.
