My name is Michael Allan. After a lifetime of addiction, I went to treatment for the last time in 2009. I went to college and earned my degree in Chemical Dependency Counseling. I have always wanted to give back and help people escape the chains of addiction. I started working at WSTC in 2016, volunteering for a year-and-a-half, at which time I was offered a paid position. I worked with WSTC until 10/2018. I came back in 9/2020 and have been working here ever since to help people get their lives back.

I have worked many years in customer service and have always had a gift for connecting with people.

When I am not in the office or doing outreach, I’m at home with my two kids. I love cooking and laughing with my littles.
Kelley Lovelace, SUDP: New Start Compliance Officer
My name is Kelley Lovelace. I am a Substance Use Disorder Professional. I enjoy working with individuals suffering from addiction, poor coping skills, co-dependency and low self-esteem. I utilize an interactive hands-on approach in which clients begin to explore healthy coping skills to manage stressors, triggers and cravings. I also work with incarcerated adults. I help them improve relationships by teaching them how to establish healthy boundaries and empower independence. I once had a second chance at life and believe in giving others the same opportunity.

Cynthia Brady, SUDPT
My name is Cynthia Brady. I am a Recovery Counselor at West Sound Treatment Center in Port Orchard, Washington. I was born in Pasco, Washington. I obtained my associates of arts & sciences degree at Olympic College in Human Services with an emphasis on Chemical Dependency Professional Training in Bremerton, Washington. While there I obtained a certificate in Case Aide, Manufacturing Technology and Chemical Dependency Professional Services. I obtained my bachelor’s degree at University of Washington in Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences with an emphasis on Ethnic, Gender and Labor Studies in Tacoma Washington. My professional goals are to continue to strengthen my community by affecting change in the lives of those impacted by drugs, the criminal justice system, poverty, homelessness, racial discrimination, and barriers that prevent social and economical growth and advancement. My personal goals are to build up and empower the lives I meet by encouraging others, sharing knowledge, information, and wisdom that comes from a Power Greater than myself, whom I choose to call GOD. My hobbies consist of reading, writing, cooking, and refurbishing old furniture etc. I love to see lives change for the better and one of my favorite quotes is: “Be the Change You Want to See.”
Le’Roy Smith, SUDPT
My name is Le’Roy Smith Jr. I am a Substance Use Disorder Professional Trainee working in the field of chemical dependency since April 2018. I started with West Sound Treatment Center in April 2018. Prior to West Sound I worked as a clinician in a Medical Assistant Treatment (MAT) program and a behavioral health program in Seattle, WA. I have an Associate Degree with a Certificate of Proficiency in Chemical Dependency and I also hold a Certificate of Recognition in Human Services-Case Aide from Olympic College. I am a Phi Theta Kappa member. I am a veteran of the United States Navy and have a personal history with a Substance Use Disorder. My passion for the position of a clinician comes from my own personal history of alcohol and substance abuse. Working in Seattle made me realize that I needed to be doing more for the community in which I live, Kitsap County, and where I have strong personal ties with the recovery community. I believe the only reason anyone should be looking down on another person is due to them offering that person a helping hand up or out of whatever has gotten them down.

My name is Joaquin Antoine. I am an Okanogan First Nations husband and father of eight. After my addictions and bad choices led to gangs and incarceration, I was blessed with the chance for a new life.

My passion and reason for helping is to help people heal and raise healthy and happy families. In my free time, I work on my family farm and raise turkeys, geese, ducks, and chickens.

My name is Kelly Richardson. I am a current, full-time student pursing a Human Services associate’s degree. Since obtaining my Substance Use Disorder Professional Trainee certificate, West Sound Treatment Center has provided me the opportunity to intern and learn how to support and treat individuals suffering from substance use disorders. I believe we, in society and as a culture, need to end the stigma associated with substance use disorders by providing ethical, compassionate, and effective care to people suffering from all disorders. After completing my required education and training, I look forward to supporting those in my community and helping them receive the care they need and deserve. I have a special interest in sociology and psychology. Learning about people and how the brain works is so fascinating to me. In my free time I enjoy doing arts and crafts, spending time with my family, and exploring the Pacific Northwest.
