Quotes

..."We're just two people in recovery," said Sharon Williams, one of the group's founders. "We are not spokespeople. But we want people to know we are here." For even more Hillsboro news, stay in touch at oregonlive.com/hillsboro. Think I missed something, or have a news tip? Send me an email
...Payoff has a sense of humor about its plan to disrupt the industry: its headquarters is full of art making fun of the traditional financial system: "A picture of the New York Stock Exchange has been scribbled over with blue pencil to resemble a casino and titled 'Gamblers Anonymous'. A snapshot of buttoned-up bankers in Kansas City is called 'Not Well-Suited'. And a photo of a bank cashier behind an old-fashioned teller cage is labelled 'Gated Community'."
"Even with counseling, I've struggled with it," she said. "I've been able to abstain for up to a year, but then something triggers, and I go right back."
"I've got another bet in me, but I'm not sure I've got another recovery" she's heard people say, time and again
