Stephanie Smith, SUDP: Drug Court Coordinator


My name is Stephanie Smith. I am a Substance Use Disorder Professional and currently hold the position of Drug and Veterans Court Coordinator at West Sound Treatment Center. I have been working with Kitsap County’s therapeutic courts for a couple years and really enjoy my position. I am passionate about helping the underserved and underrepresented members of our community. Unfortunately, there are not enough pipeline-style programs to help transition folks from incarceration to the community. My position allows me to do that in a seamless way that is beneficial to the person and to the community. In May 2021, I graduated summa cum laude from Washington State University with my bachelor’s degree in science, including a major in psychology and a minor in sociology. I plan to attend grad school to get a master’s degree in mental health as my ultimate career goal is to be dual credentialed in substance use disorder and mental health treatment. I aspire to continue on and get a doctoral degree after that – I am a committed lifelong learner. In my free time, I enjoy binge watching true crime shows and spending time with my three children, ages 5, 6, and 14.

Nakita Schoenbaechler, SUDP/T: Vocational Rehabilitation and Support Services


My name is Nakita. I am the SABG Vocational Rehabilitation Coordinator and an SUDP/T group counselor. I have several years of lived experience in addiction and recovery. My addiction gave me the drive to obtain my associate’s degree in human services to help others who have struggles similar to the ones I once had. I hope that my story will bring light to others’ darkness in their recovery journey. The best part is to watch people grow and succeed in the goals they have made for themselves while in treatment.
