Krissi Jacob

Krissi Jacob is the Peer Recovery Support Specialist for the National Recovery Institute Training Team for Faces & Voices of Recovery. As a person in long-term recovery, advocating for peers and allies within the addiction recovery movement has been a passion since the beginning of her personal transformation in late 2014.

Starting out as a front desk coordinator in the same treatment center she attended, Krissi rose quickly to facilitating yoga and meditation classes, Spiritual Principles groups, and creating after care plans for peers at the organization. After seeing that access to yoga and meditation as a recovery path was limited within her community, Krissi began assisting recovery community organizations with implementing a personalized approach to yoga and meditation for recovery groups.

Krissi is a Certified Addiction Recovery Empowerment Specialist, Certified Yoga and Meditation Instructor, currently working on attaining Master Yogi status, Forensic Peer Mentor, and Spiritual Life Coach.

It is with passion and purpose that she strives to offer the best of herself to all whom she encounters and to embody the spirit of recovery in all she does.
