Meet Sarah Bachmeier!
September 17, 2019
By: Sarah Bachmeier, Independent Living Specialist
Hi, my name is Sarah Bachmeier and I am an Independent Living Advocate here at Independence, Inc. as well as a Care Coordinator for Free Through Recovery. Even though I am able to help all consumers, my strengths lie in criminal justice and mental health.
I am an addict in recovery and will celebrate 3 years clean on October 18th. In addition to being in recovery, I am also a felon. I personally have struggled in the same life areas as the people I serve. My experiences have enabled me to guide and advocate for consumers. I work very closely with Probation and Parole, Ward County Jail, Ward County Social Services, and any other agency necessary to help consumers get on track and progress in their life. Being of service to others is one of the pillars of my recovery, and it has been a driving force in my success.
The staff at Independence, Inc. has been so amazing during the transition, and they are eager to learn more about addiction and the criminal justice system. I’m very excited to represent this demographic and utilize all that Independence, Inc. has to offer in order to make big changes. I will be forever grateful to Scott and the staff for believing in me and giving me this opportunity.
