I am originally from Chicago where my passion for helping people began. My childhood was spent helping at the nursing home where my mom worked as a nurse. At age 15 with a worker’s permit I started as a kitchen aide for that same nursing home. At 17 I became a certified nursing assistant. At 19 I found the love of recovery and my life forever changed. Addiction runs in my family heavily, so my goal was to work in the drug and alcohol treatment industry and give back what was so freely given to me.
In 2012 I decided to take a chance and move to Arizona where I was able to find my niche which is – helping people recover through empowerment and compassion. I first started as a House Manager, next became Office Manager, then Assistant Housing Director and most recently Director of Client Services coupled with Director of Human Resources. The past seven years have been demanding yet the most rewarding moments in my life. To be able to show up everyday and live your passion is unlike anything I’ve ever felt before.
In 2019, coming full circle – I was given the opportunity to move to Colorado and be a part of something much greater – Mountain View Recovery Center. Here I get to live out my dream in recovery. I believe in positive affirmation, compassion and family camaraderie to recover from addiction. That’s the only thing that has personally worked for me and I am forever grateful.

Madelyn is a Denver, Colorado native. Who now calls Colorado Springs her home due to finding recovery after a long battle with her own personal struggles. Madelyn has an educational background in creative design which has been translated to her work at Mountain View. She goes above and beyond for our clients in all areas including but not limited to life coaching, case management and creating a safe home like environment. Madelyn found recovery through therapy, and a sober community which has completely changed her life. Madelyn has stated she was amazed by how many people try to find recovery and mental health services and that are only being met with the bare minimum – not something that is all encompassing. Madelyn thought “What if a team of people could help a client not only reach a stable baseline but actually build a future worth maintaining through not only recovery but case management services?” Madelyn then found Mountain View who shares this same belief. She is “honored to be part of a team that is examining the bigger picture and seeking long term solutions for clients that deserve to not just survive but thrive.“
