Mayhew named director of Turning Point Center

JENNIFER MAYHEW

MIDDLEBURY — The Turning Point Center of Addison County welcomes incoming Executive Director Jennifer Mayhew of Bristol. Jenn assumed her role on November 16th.
With a master’s in Public Health from the University of Vermont, Mayhew has a history of leading healthcare teams locally in Vermont, regionally, and for various national companies. She has spent most of her career working with hospitals and primary care providers in many aspects of the health care system that include Patient-Centered Medical Homes, Community Health Teams, the Hub & Spoke system of Opioid Use Disorder treatment, which includes Medication Assisted Treatment. 
Mayhew has a passion for creating support systems for individuals and families seeking recovery. She feels very strongly that there are an infinite number of pathways to recovery and has a personal connection to family members who have been affected by addiction. For her, connection to community, connection to the natural world, and her faith, have all been instrumental as a source of inspiration and healing. 
In her free time Mayhew enjoys long distance hiking: having completed the entire Appalachian Trail (2,200 miles), over 1,000 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail, solo treks through Patagonia, and recently 150 miles on the Long Trail in Vermont. She loves winter mountaineering and ice climbing with her husband Owen and dog Jake.
“We are so fortunate to have Jenn’s combination of energy, experience and passion to lead our center, especially as the pandemic has presented increased challenges for those in recovery” says board president, Will Porter.
Due to Governor Scott’s recent COVID guidelines, the physical use of the Center is currently suspended, but staff are available five days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The center staff is available and ready to offer peer support, recovery coaching, and online recovery meetings. A listing of all services is available at turningpointaddisonvt.org or by calling 802-388-4249.
