About Akira

As a nurse at True Recovery, Akira works with our patients and assists staff members on a daily basis to ensure our client’s comfort and recovery. In her free time, Akira enjoys going indoor bouldering, trying out new food places, and watching crime shows on Netflix.

Why did you choose to work at True Recovery?

While I haven’t struggled with addiction myself, I have loved ones that have been battling the disease for years, and I’ve seen the effect it has on their lives and those close to them.

I chose to pursue work in treatment for the same reason I wanted to be a nurse, I want to end every work day knowing that I put all of my energy and education into affecting positive change.

Being a part of a team like True’s that leads with empathy and patience, and seeing residents evolve and progress in their recovery, is the most rewarding experience.” – Akira
