BIGVISION is a ground-breaking organization that is filling the gap of sober supports for young adults in New York City. Outside of treatment, keeping young adults active, social and having fun is imperative to their relapse prevention. Through experiential activities, I have witnessed them gain access to a greater sense of belonging, joy, freedom and confidence, which are the fundamental qualities for long-term sobriety.

Our Team

EVE GOLDBERG
Founder
eve@bigvisionnyc.com

Eve founded BIGVISION in January 2015, a year after her 23-year-old son, Isaac, died of an accidental drug overdose. She was motivated to do something to help young adults in recovery in New York City learn to live fun, meaningful, sober lives. Eve is part of a wonderful family business operating in New York for over 50 years. She has now committed to making BIGVISION a reality by creating entertaining, engaging events and building a community center where the BIGVISION "family" can enjoy themselves in a cool, hip, substance-free environment.

NEIL WALLIN
Co-Founder

Neil Wallin co-founded BIGVISION with his wife Eve Goldberg. In his role as a stepdad, Neil's loss of Isaac was profound, as they bonded from the moment they met in 2010. Their shared loves included basketball, food and a thirst for trivial and meaningful knowledge. Neil's entrepreneurial passion had previously been channeled toward the fields of restoration and restaurants. Neil recently created an upscale boutique matchmaking, coaching and mentoring service called The Soulmater, whose profits will help support BIGVISION activities. Neil and Eve work side by side in their downtown office strategizing, planning and implementing their ideas to the benefit of the entire BIGVISION community.

In 2001, Max met Isaac and they became best friends. Their friendship continued through high school, and they ultimately weathered addiction together. In June 2012, at the age of 22, Max began his recovery and renewed his life. He has made a commitment to help others overcome addiction and learn to love themselves without drugs and alcohol. Max completed his bachelor’s degree at Temple University and is working toward earning a master’s degree in Social Work. He one day plans to create a wilderness and recreational therapeutic rehabilitation center.

Director of Operations

Christine has been with BIGVISION since August 2015, where she serves as the Director of Operations. Christine, who is a Certified Addiction Recovery Coach, graduated from Northeastern University in 2007 with a degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology and previously worked in the legal field. Christine grew up with alcoholism in her family and has always been passionate about working with young adults in recovery. Christine treasures her time with family and her four-year-old son.


BIGVISION is a warm and welcoming community that enables young people in recovery to not only have sober fun, but to overcome challenges and connect with others in profound ways. I know that our clients are in the best hands when they attend BIGVISION events, and I know they will be wearing bright smiles the next day, brimming with positivity; many continue to attend events on their own even after completing treatment, as the organization becomes a part of the fabric of their lives. A guiding light for young people, BIGVISION is a reminder that while the journey of recovery can be difficult, there is still so much to celebrate.
