Nancy Shuman- AMP Manager
My name is Nancy Shuman, and I am a women in recovery. As of 2015, I have seven plus years walking this path of recovery and am blessed to have a life beyond my wildest dreams. I have two boys who are 19 and 20. I have a significant other that has been in my life for four and half years and it is the healthiest relationship I’ve ever been in. Life if plentiful today and I can walk today with my head held high with grace and dignity.
I became a part of the recovery field in June of 2011 and have loved every day of it. I joined the Nova Recovery Center team in July of 2012. I am the current AMP Manager in Houston, Texas, for the Eudaimonia Recovery Homes. I work directly with our clients that live in the homes on a daily basis. I help them navigate the small nuances that come with being newly sober. I hold them accountable to their behavior, by showing how to turn a negative situation in to a growth opportunity. With every situation that they walk through, is an opportunity for them to grow. Working with the families on a weekly basis as a liaison between the client and the family member to help rebuild the broken relationship. Along with helping the client build a solid foundation in recovery for the next step in life. It is an extremely rewarding job, with extremely happy endings.
