Ms. Myles is an ordained minister, advocate for the elderly, community activist, peer counselor, veteran, subject matter expert in mental health and untreated trauma, and a proponent for faith-based approaches to substance abuse recovery.  She is the founder of Free Indeed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which was the first licensed faith-based outpatient treatment center in the state.
