Hello my name is Patricia Tucker and I am the new Admission Coordinator for Cayuga Addiction Recovery Services Residential Addiction Recovery Center. I hold an Associate’s Degree in Human Service from Corning Community College, and have also just completed my first year working towards my BA in Social Work at Keuka College. I have worked in the Human Service field for the past 10 years. I’ve worked for the Upstate New York Eating Disorder Service with clients with a multiple of different eating disorders. I have also facilitated my own workshop where I am a motivational speaker, reaching and teaching others of positive body image. I am extremely passionate about helping clients get connected to services they need and deserve. I feel that my past experiences and knowledge will help me in providing both referral sources and clients with a positive referral experience
