She always enjoyed the medical field working at St. John’s Hospital and then worked in the dental field in Tulsa. Lea Marie struggled with chemical addiction. Her family and she moved to Edmond, Oklahoma in 2015. It was at this time she reached out for help and found Hope is Alive, a faith-based program.
