Jean McCarthy

Jean McCarthy is a writer, podcaster, and recovery advocate who works tirelessly to help others find their most authentic life. Jean encourages a patchwork approach to recovery, in which growth and change is supported using a variety of resources that suit the individual. As producer and host of The Bubble Hour podcast, Jean has shared the recovery stories of hundreds of guests and learned the value of continually assessing and improving one’s own “recovery bubble”. She shares her personal reflections on her own recovery in her blog UnPickled, which documents her journey out of alcohol addiction from her very first day of sobriety in 2011. Since then she has helped thousands of women find their way to freedom from alcohol. Jean received the 2017 Hope Award at the She Recovers NYC conference in recognition of her contribution to the recovery movement.
