The Courageous Leap to Confronting Addiction, Leaving Home, Embracing Knowledge and Honoring One’s Self - Dr. Andrea N. Hunt
This week on the KORE Women podcast, Dr. Summer Watson has an incredible conversation with Dr. Andrea N. Hunt, who is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Family Studies and the Director of the Mitchell-West Center for Social Inclusion at the University of North Alabama.
Dr. Hunt talks about her courageous journey of confronting addiction, leaving home, how school and her mentors supported her through her transformational journey, and how she became more self aware and started to honor herself.
She is a first-generation graduate and her teaching, research, and community work cover a range of interrelated topics including trauma, identity, inequality, the role of academic advising in student retention, mentoring, effective online pedagogy, and learning experiences that promote information and media literacy. Dr. Hunt is a court appointed special advocate and works in the community with mental health professionals, social workers, youth in juvenile detention, and adults in recovery. She is currently pursuing a degree in counseling to better support her community.
