Brooke Russell, executive director and CEO of Recovery Beyond, will be the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Mercer Island virtual meeting at 1 p.m. on Oct. 27.
Her topic will be “Use Disorder. Learning a Healthy Life,” and all are welcome to join the Zoom meeting at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/4096976967
According to the Rotary site, “Brooke began her passion in the nonprofit world at a young age when she hired an individual with intellectual disabilities. The mentoring relationship quickly resulted in the priceless knowledge that the most rewarding things in life can be accomplished one step at a time with simple, structured planning, and proper support. Her daily dose of patience is refueled with a simple smile and Disney quote from the expressive autistic 21-year-old in her life.”
Russell brings 25 years of experience planning and managing programs for nonprofits organizations in Arizona, Florida and South Carolina where she delivered training, consulting and facilitation services for social change organizations, helping them to build their capacity in the skills and processes of collaboration.
