My name is Kate Vitela and I’m a wife, a daughter, a sister, a step-mom and a nurse…. But most importantly I am a sober freakin warrior. My sober date is 2-10-18. I speak, write and advocate for sobriety all in the hopes to tear down stigma and bring some love and laughter into the journey. I recover out loud through various social media platforms and I love meeting new people in the recovery community. I work in behavioral health and I feel like every single story is impactful. I got sober in the rooms of AA and now I have branched out to several other groups that are more open forum. I love different aspects of all these recovery modalities and have respect for any path to sobriety and recovery if it works for each individual. I’m hoping to share parts of my story and also give some insight into what I’m working on now with the recovery magazine The Sober Curator. I look forward to meeting you all!
