Jessica Carter, CRSW, Executive Director
My name is Jess and I am the Executive Director here at Revive. Growing up in a household with substance use disorder and other health problems, I quickly developed a sense that I was destined to help others. I graduated from Nashua High School North in 2006 and went on to study Nursing at Fairfield University where I played Division 1 Lacrosse. I started at Revive as the State's first publicly funded "Recovery Coach" position to work hand in hand with the City of Nashua's Safe Station program and I was privileged with the task of meeting individuals in Respite and getting them connected with other recovery related resources.
My role has since changed as I have been blessed with the opportunity to learn and grow with the organization for 6 years now. I am currently Chair of the New Hampshire Harm Reduction Coalition and also the President of the New Hampshire Providers Association. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband and I have two young boys who are full of energy and we spend any free time playing football, fishing, boating, going to the beach, skiing/snowboarding and this year I started helping to coach my oldest son's Lacrosse team.

Marshall Wood, CRSW, Nashua Center Manager
In my opinion, Revive serves as a backbone for the recovery community, and a strong one at that. A place where everyone is welcome, and where individuals are treated equally, but all met with love, unique to who they are as a person. That’s where my journey started at Revive, many years ago while I was still struggling. I’m approaching my 2 year mark of employment at Revive, and in that time I’ve been able to acquire my CRSW, and have been blessed to work with so many wonderful participants, and an amazing team of coworkers.
Helen Quattrochi, Derry Center Manager
I Started to volunteer at Revive in 2018 and saw the work that was being done there and behind the scenes so when the opportunity presented itself last year for a job opportunity I wanted to help. Having worked in the medical field for 36 years this is a different field for me. Excited to be part of a team helping people in the community and learning something new each day.
Sarah Brown, Peer Recovery Support Specialist
I'm Sarah and I am a person in long-term recovery. I began my journey at Revive as first a participant and then a volunteer, and as I progressed in my recovery eventually secured a role as a Peer Support Specialist. Working at Revive has allowed me to be a cheerleader for my community and give back what was so freely given to me. I love working for an organization that promotes a holistic, person-centered approach to recovery with radical acceptance for all. Outside of work, I like spending my time in nature, hiking, creating art, and connecting with my community through my 12-step fellowship.
Molly Plummer, CRSW, Care Coordinator
My name is Molly Plummer and I am an ally of recovery. I have been with Revive for 3 years now, beginning as an Americorps volunteer my first year then transitioning to an employee in 2021. I am a Care Coordinator and I love what I do. I began my journey to my CRSW career because I have personal experience with family and friends dealing with substance use disorder. I enjoy traveling, animals, and being in nature.
Sharif El Fouly, Peer Recovery Support Specialist
I am a peer support specialist in long term recovery. I really do not take myself too seriously but at the same time I am incredibly passionate about my ever evolving interests. I love architecture, art and fashion. I spend a decent amount of time with my community, live by spiritual principles and carry myself with dignity.
Lindsey Bailey, Volunteer Coordinator
Hi! I’m Lindsey and I am a new addition to the Revive team. I was first introduced to Revive by attending activities and events such as the September BBQ, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas parties. I instantly felt welcomed and had so much fun!
I began to volunteer at Revive because I loved the atmosphere and wanted to give back. I have a passion for thrifting and loved helping with organizing the clothing donations and assisting participants with items they needed. Part of my roles at Revive are Donation and Volunteer Coordination, to say I’m thrilled would be an understatement! I sincerely enjoy being able to work with participants and volunteers at the center.
My recovery story has been one of finding balance, healing and growth through holistic resources and the Recovery Dharma Program. I am looking forward to pursuing my interests and education in holistic fields to bring to the community at Revive. A quote that brought me inspiration in early recovery was “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new” from Socrates. It just so happens this quote is on the wall in the office and I am grateful to have the reminder everyday.
Sarah Childress, Peer Recovery Support Specialist
I am a person in Long term recovery and first came to revive as a participant. Through growth and learning I am now able to be of service to my peers. My goal in this work is to give compassionate and caring support through peer relationships for the betterment of our community.
By developing tools for self advocacy, identification of needs, and emphasizing the importance of self care, as well as considering the very unique aspects of each individual and their chosen path, I can honor each participant’s strengths and empower them to choose their own way of recovery.
I will always be a passionate voice for those of us who are in need of services.
I ensure a trauma-informed space and I uphold inclusivity to all.
Lewis E Hastings, Care Coordinator
I have been in recovery for numerous years and had begun my journey back in 1994 where I finally surrendered and became willing to change. This change has brought about many new and sometimes overwhelming paths to recovery and means towards abstinence in my recovery life.
Within my journey, I have been fortunate to work and continue to work in Human Services for nearly 30 years. I started as an adult foster parent to a direct professional worker, a coordinator, and a case manager in a winding field that continues to grow as the years pass.
I continue to look towards the future in my personal recovery path with a range of projects around being an author and writer of several published books on ‘Recover and Beyond’.
