My name is Wendy Sachs and I’m thrilled to be part of the new Experts by Experience Advisory Committee for Mental Health Colorado. I am a Colorado native who is married and has two amazing twenty-something children. I recently changed jobs and I currently work as a Forensic Peer Navigator for the Denver County Courts. I work with the Alternative Courts and help the participants with getting whatever resources they need, to help them build their Recovery Capital, and to provide support and connection to the outside Recovery Community. I am lucky enough to be a person in long-term recovery (10+ years) and I want to share my knowledge and experiences with others to help them make their lives better and more meaningful. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, crafting, reading, horseback riding, and taking my dog who is a Therapy Dog for visits to area hospitals.
