80 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Stories of Sobriety (Fay Zenoff)

Talking with Fay Zenoff was so much fun and time flew by. She's grounded and very spiritual person. It's clear her recovery has settled into every cell of her body and her soul radiates this peace that is contagious. I look forward to meeting her IRL when I finally make my way to NorCal.

Fay Zenoff is the driving spirit behind the emergence of the Center for Open Recovery (COR). Since being hired as the Executive Director for The National Council on Alcoholism and other Drug Addictions-Bay Area, in 2014, she has led the evolution of the 60-year old, San Francisco-based, non-profit – from that of a local direct-service provider to become a nationally recognized recovery advocacy organization focused on ending the stigma of addiction and championing life in recovery. 

Fay’s work, views, and personal experiences have been the subject of articles and interviews in the New York Times, Bloomberg Business Week, The California Report, KQED’s Perspectives, Lauren Schiller’s Inflection Point, The Fix, Facing Addiction’s docu-series Out of the Shadows/Addiction Across America, Marin Magazine and others. She has been a speaker for private and public organizations, and an interviewed guest on radio shows and podcasts. She is the 2016 recipient of Constellation Behavioral Health’s Courage Award for her work in the addiction and mental health fields.  

Fay earned an MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and a BA from Sarah Lawrence College. 

Fay lives in Marin, has two daughters, a dog named Nilla and loves to hike, bike, xc-ski and SUP. Fay has been sober and in recovery since 2007.
