Meet Our Board of Directors:
Prudence Wilkins has worked in a financial environment for the past 20 years, with the past 6 years being at Wells Fargo, where I currently hold the title of Business Liaison Consultant. I am also the co-owner of Queen Status Fitness Studio located in Spring Hope, NC, where I am also one of the group fitness instructors, and personal trainer. I’ve had the opportunity of working with different non-profit organizations over the years serving in different capacity’s. As an individual who takes a holistic approach to health & wellness, after hearing about the organization, I knew I wanted to get involved with RCNC. Recovery takes on a broad spectrum of life changes, and I wanted to be able to provide and assist with individuals with hope, motivation, and an overall balance to recovery which includes Health & Wellness. I also want to be able brig awareness to our younger community about addiction, if we educate our youth, we could stop an addiction before it starts.
I have a strong passion to give back and also change the mentality of the way people view recovery, and advocate for more grants, education and research be provided to assist with the overall aspect of recovery. As one strong voice and togetherness we can change and educate the communities we live and work in about addiction and/or recovery and also provide awareness to individuals who are struggling behind closed doors, and families who are also being impacted by addiction, there is help.
I am married with 3 children, and live in Spring Hope, North Carolina, in our spare time, we love to travel, fish, and of course attend any events that are related to health & Wellness.
