Founders Story

Hired Power was founded in 2002 by a woman with passion and a vision.


Mrs. Deborah Felin Magaldi, a leading business owner and professional, knew the difficulties of transitioning newly acquired recovery skills into her home and professional life. Mrs. Magaldi had experienced several of the top treatment centers in the country, yet returning home and maintaining recovery continued to be difficult and elusive. With the support of a Personal Recovery Assistant, more widely known as a sober companion, living in her home, Deborah successfully overcame personal and professional challenges remaining on the road to lasting recovery. To this day Deborah believes having this service saved her life. Mrs. Magaldi dedicated herself to creating a company that could provide professional Personal Recovery Assistants to others who continued to struggle.

At the end of 2005, Mrs. Magaldi passed the reins of her vision to her executive team leader, Nanette Zumwalt. Deborah and her husband Mark returned home to the Rocky Mountains and remains avid supporters and advisers to Hired Power.
