  • Detroit, MI (1888PressRelease) December 03, 2014 - Gayle M. Myers, Michigan Certified Peer Support Specialist at MDCH, has been selected as an Honored Member of the Covington Who's Who Executive and Professional Registry.

    Gayle M. Myers began her career in 2002 as a PATH Housing Intake Worker at a local non-profit mental health agency for the mentally ill and homeless. Remaining in that position for nearly eight years, Ms. Myers then accepted a position as a Michigan Certified Peer Support Specialist at MDCH.
