"I am deeply honored to be recognized as the Outstanding Women of Today award recipient from Altrusa Richardson," shares Lisa Kroencke, CEO of The Magdalen House. "In 2007, just two months sober, I entered The Magdalen House and never looked back. It is truly humbling to be recognized for my work in helping others achieve sobriety and maintain recovery. I never imagined that my journey would lead me here, but I am grateful for the opportunity to use my experience to make a difference in the lives of others. The Magdalen House gave me a sense of purpose and helped me realize that my sobriety was meant for something greater. Hearing someone thank me for saving their life gives me a high that no drink ever could, and I am honored to continue this work every day."
