Northern Lights Trainer Spotlight: Moriah Nail

“I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree from Fayetteville State University, an HBCU, with a major in psychology and a minor in English. I earned my Master of Arts in counseling with a focus on addiction and recovery from Liberty University where religious studies and spirituality were also a main focus.

As an Army spouse for more than 20 years I have had the luxury of meeting individuals from all over the world. Befriending and working with others who had various ethnicities introduced me to new cultures, foods, religions, languages and traditions. These beautifully multicultural people broadened my world view and positively contributed to the open minded, accepting, empathetic person that I am today. I celebrate differences, advocate equity, and endeavor to share my positive light with everyone I meet.

A few fun facts about me are that I have no middle name, I have an irrational fear of mice (I’m convinced this is in my DNA due to my Irish ancestry), and I love to clean and organize.”

Moriah lives in Saint Johnsbury, VT and facilitates Trauma Informed Practice, Culturally Responsive Classrooms, and the Stories of Belonging Book Club.
