On the Move
CHEEERS Recovery Center congratulates two of our team members for their recent and ongoing accomplishments.
FrankeyJune Tewers, a loyal employee of more than 4 years, has been promoted to our Expressions of Hope Programming Coordinator at CHEEERS. Expressions of Hope combines creativity and artistic expression with recovery principles. The program helps our members learn new ways of coping, expressing themselves, exploring spirituality and building confidence, while learning a new skill and creating some magnificent pieces of artwork or jewelry. FrankeyJune has worked as a Recovery Mentor covering a variety of life skills programming at CHEEERS, however; her true passion and talent has been no secret, she’s an artist! We are excited for FrankeyJune to take on this new role and bring her creativity and skills to our program participants.

Renee Medunic was recently appointed to the Mercy Care Member Advisory Committee. This committee works together with the health plan and the Office of Individual and Family Affairs to make suggestions for program and outreach service improvements, to better engage members and to ensure that those with lived experience are involved in policy issues and development. Renee works as a Support Services Manager within our day program at CHEEERS. She leads a team of Peer Supports, Mentors and Specialists who share their experience strength and hope with our members in groups, one to ones and a variety of services and events. Renee is a “train the trainer” in an evidence based smoking cessation program called The Dimensions, and is also certified to provide SAMHSA’s evidence based practice of Whole Health Action Management or WHAM.
Renee is delighted with her recent appointment to the Member Advisory Committee and looks forward to making a difference. Way to go Renee!
