Seamstress

Stuck in a relationship that was draining her emotionally, Jillian sought refuge in alcohol. Feelings of intense anger after the loss of her unborn child were hard enough to deal with and when she began to be harassed, she started to spiral into daily drinking which lead to blackouts. But then, she chose to enter a long term recovery program and begin the journey of healing and forgiveness. Now she is a joy-filled person who is restoring her relationship with her son and growing exponentially professionally as she seeks to live life to the fullest!
