Meet our Staff

Eva Pickeral

Program Director

I came to Minnesota from Dallas, Texas in the winter of 2009 to go to treatment for alcohol and opiate addiction. I completed a 30-day program and followed recommendations to transition into St. Paul Sober Living’s program for women where I committed to stay for 6 months. My experience thus far has been incredible and I feel fortunate to have stayed sober since the day I arrived.

After years in the service industry, I have finally found my place working to share my experience helping others in early recovery. For the past 4 years as I served as Admissions Coordinator for The Retreat in Wayzata, Minnesota. I recently joined the SPSL family as Director of Operations and I am thrilled to be part of this incredible group. It’s a joy to watch our residents grow and change as they engage in the community and rebuild their lives.

I have recently returned to college and am in the process of earning my certificate in Alcohol and Drug Counseling with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I am extremely grateful for my life in sobriety and very proud of the work I do here at SPSL.
