- Eleanor Health updates
Meet the Durham, NC clinical team!
March 23, 2021
My name is Candace Harris. I come to Eleanor as the Clinic Operations Manager in Durham. I have had the privilege of working in the Mental Health/ Substance Use Disorder field for 10 years and have served in various clinical settings. My experience has taught me that when we are brave enough to embrace our vulnerabilities, our true power is revealed. I’m excited to support our community as our team helps people to live amazing lives by delivering a whole-person, personalized approach to treatment and recovery. When I am not at Eleanor, my daughter, the light of my life, keeps me busy with her cheer, dance, and social activities.
I’m excited to introduce you to the rest of our Eleanor Health Durham clinical care team!
We are grateful to have Tara Day join our team as a Community Recovery Partner. Tara is NC Peer Support certified and brings a wealth of knowledge and over 4 years of experience in this field. Prior to Eleanor, she served as a Certified Peer Support Specialist with the Drug and DUI Treatment Court of Illinois. Tara’s humble spirit, openness, and willingness to serve were regarded as an integral part of the program’s success. Tara’s desire to help others stems from personal experience. She states, “I have been in recovery from substance use disorder for 9 years. I have been in a hopeless state where my world was falling apart. It is my passion to help others recover and have a life again.” Outside of her time with Eleanor, Tara enjoys spending time with her husband and three children.
We are excited to have Sasha Millington join us as a Community Recovery Partner. Sasha is a substance use counselor and brings invaluable experience and compassion to her role. She earned a Master’s Degree in Human Services Counseling from Liberty University and a Substance Use Counseling certification from Wake Technical Community College. She has supported individuals of all ages and backgrounds and loves to collaborate with others. Sasha states, “I’ve lost many loved ones due to addiction and lack of knowledge about mental health. Helping people overcome their struggles with substance use gives me joy and gives me purpose. When I leave here, I want to leave knowing that everything that has been poured into me from learned mistakes, wisdom, and education was used to help others.” Sasha is an advocate for the LGBTQ community and a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. When she is not at Eleanor, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, exercising, going to festivals or concerts, and traveling.
My name is Jenn Muster and I come to Eleanor Health to serve as the Member Experience Administrative Specialist in Durham. After studying at West Virginia University and serving in The United States Army, I have spent the last 12 years focused on polishing my administrative skills. My personal experiences with mental illness inspire me to show the compassion and caring that helps me to succeed in life. In my spare time, I am continuing my education through BYU-Idaho, love to quilt and make candles, and hang out with my husband of 12 years and our six animals.
