Chef and restaurant owner Katie Collier is getting ready to celebrate nine years of sobriety. After struggling with alcoholism and going through multiple treatment centers, she opened up Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria. The business is now in its sixth year of operation.
Collier credits her success to the grit and perseverance that it took to get sober. And now, she uses her experience to help others who are struggling with addiction.
On Wednesday’s St. Louis on the Air, host Sarah Fenske will talk with Collier about her journey.
