Gayle Farman Leaving to Start a New Venture
It is with mixed sentiment that we share the news that Gayle Farman will be leaving her role as Director of Certification and Workforce Development.
Gayle has been a deeply committed leader and advocate for people and the mission of developing a peer recovery workforce in New York State. She will continue to be involved in an advisory role with ASAP and other statewide projects to combat the Opioid Epidemic.
She is leaving this role to launch an entrepreneurial venture she has founded, Passport for Good (www.passportforgood.com), a software solution which captures and encourages authentic community service and showcases the positive impact for people and organizations.
Gayle wishes everyone well in their work and their future and is excited about the great impact that will be made through successful integration of the peer workforce!
