Isabel Cooney joined Allies in Recovery in 2014, and is thrilled every day to be part of the team and the project. Cooney's background includes work in elementary education as well as a stint in the corporate world (executive assistant and bilingual receptionist). These experiences as well as her passions for writing, well-being, mindfulness and human communication are all useful in her work for Allies in Recovery. Cooney's current responsibilities at Allies include project management, blog editing and writing, overseeing our member services, and serving as team liaison. She resides on the rainy Normandy Coast in France with her family, including her three inspiring, strong-willed daughters, and a neurotic fox terrier.
