Tim Palmer

The P.E.A.S.E. Community Foundation board is one way Tim gave back in gratitude for the awesome support network that helps his son with his recovery. Tim fully believes in the need for the P.E.A.S.E. community as an organization where adolescents can feel safe, accepted, and encouraged to achieve their full potential. P.E.A.S.E. brings the power of community into the recovery process.

Cory Borthwick

Cory Borthwick

Board Member

Cory has been active in the Al-Anon Community for over 20 years and came to hear about P.E.A.S.E. Academy when searching for a safe and sober High School for her daughter: when she was a junior in High School, and in early recovery. P.E.A.S.E. provided an excellent High School education, while at the same time an excellent support network of teachers, staff, and other students who are understanding and focused on maintaining sobriety. Cory believes the P.E.A.S.E. Community Foundation is a resource that needs to be extended and sustained for families who are affected by substance abuse.

Cory’s background is in marketing, fundraising, and communications, and as a Board Member is helping to get the message out to the broader community about P.E.A.S.E. Academy. She is active in other work and charities, including the Hazelden Betty Ford Al-Anon group, and currently sits on the Board of Gift of Adoption, a national charity focused on helping adoptive children and their families.
