Gloriana Hunter, Ed.d., Instructional design & facilitation
Gloriana Hunter is a champion of peer and family support. For over a decade, she has actively advocated for the inclusion of peers and family members in all forms of behavioral and integrated health care.
Gloriana believes training is a key element to sustaining a strong peer and family support workforce. She has developed and delivered several skill-development courses for people employed in peer and family support, plus their supervisors and managers. Her facilitative recipe holds a perfect mixture of practical application, evidence-based knowledge, humor, and inspiration.
Gloriana's focus on peer and family support comes organically through her own lived experience of recovery. She states, "I had a family who willingly stepped in and stepped up for me when I needed them most, and peer support was offered to me from the first day. This level of support has made all the difference between a life ruined and a life realized."
Today, Gloriana is a leading expert on how organizations can help build career paths for peer and family support employees. She holds a Master of Business Administration and an Educational Doctorate in Organizational Leadership.
