TriCircle, Inc. – Founder, Executive Director
D.O.B. October 20, 1963 – CT. USA
Found Recovery July 13, 1995
Ana has strong personal commitment to explore multiple pathways for recovery and for treatment. She continues to cultivate resources to connect her clients and their families to sustainable long-term options.
Ana grew up on the Westside of Wallingford, CT and at a young age she had lost her way in life which took her down a path that wasn’t conducive to meeting healthy social norms. Despite her misguided experiences and adversities, she is now enjoying success in many areas in life. It’s been over 26 years now that Ana has identified herself as a woman in recovery, which means she hasn’t used any mood- or mind-altering substances including alcohol since July 13, 1995.
She has had the honor and privilege of doing service work in many communities and has shared her story both Nationally and Internationally. Ana has a very colorful and motivating way of sharing her journey, leaving her audiences hopeful, and inspired.
She is a believer that success can’t be achieved alone, and she strives for win-win outcomes. Ana’s diverse network has aided her with helping many people. By remaining humble and open to opportunities while learning about the disease of addiction, she will remain an asset in this profession.
After 26 years in a corporate career, Ana has transitioned all her energies into her new businesses… TriCircle, Inc. 501 (c)(3) and its 3Phase creation and TriCircle Restoration LLC, the creator of “The Paraphernalia Project.” These companies are in existence to support the solutions, education and resources needed in Connecticut communities. On January 1, 2016, a 2year plan was mapped out. Ana believes this plan will fulfill her lifetime purpose to serve.
Ana integrates complementary methodology and techniques to help clients effectively address their individual life challenges. Along with understanding, Ana brings practical suggestions to her work. She continues to support families and their loved ones who are affected by the disease of addiction to find solutions, continued successes, and the resources needed to thrive in life.
At the age of 42 Ana started college, and at 57, (Oct. 20th, 1963). education still drives her passion and purpose. She has had the honor and privilege to share her recovery story in many places, the TriCircle media page has much of that coverage. Ana was also documented as part of the “I Am Not Anonymous” project, read here: http://www.iamnotanonymous.org/ana
Ana regularly says that the shame, guilt, and stigma that surrounds individuals and families affected by the disease is just as detrimental as the disease itself. The opposite of addiction is connection, and Together WE are Stronger!
