About Keys to Recovery
Spreading the Message of Hope and Recovery
THE PEOPLE BEHIND - KEYS TO RECOVERY NEWSPAPER, INC.
Jeannie Marshall - Co-Founder & President: Having 38 years of marketing, advertising, and PR experience - ten of those years working on a recovery newspaper - I feel uniquely qualified to lead and support our team to achieve our purpose and our mission.
Many of you will remember me from the Steps for Recovery newspaper, where I worked until 2008 with my business partner and good friend Jason Levin, who passed away. Unable to continue working on the newspaper without him, I choose to go back to corporate America. After 5 years of healing I felt ready, willing and able to go back to my one true passion - carrying the message of hope and recovery... through Keys to Recovery Newspaper Inc.
A bit more about me: I restarted my sobriety in 1986; I love the 12-steps and living in a world where I have a purpose. I have a passion to help the helpless. My favorite principle is Service.
Marcus Marshall - Co-founder & Vice President: I started working at age 13 in the field of service at Sylmar Children’s Spastic Foundation as a patient care technician. At age 18 I worked as a Counselor in Psychiatrics at Chatsworth Health and Rehab Center. I also worked in sales and marketing gathering about 25 years experience in that field as well.
I was derailed by my addiction and for about ten years I was going in and out of jails and prisons, which makes me uniquely qualified to understanding the difficulties of transitioning back into society.
I started my recovery in early 2012 and found myself wanting to go back to my preferred profession – Patient Care. I worked at Cri-Help as a lead support technician, while attending the Addiction Studies Program at Pierce College, which helped prepare me for this vocation. Publishing Keys to Recovery Newspaper Inc. is giving me the opportunity to use all my life experiences to help others.
A bit more about me: I have a passion for God and helping others find their way to him. I love helping the homeless. My favorite principle is Faith.
