Meet the Staff

Michael Paige-250x250.jpg

Site Director

I am a Washington, DC native, Virginia State University graduate (bachelor's and master's), proud Omega Psi Phi man, and honored uncle. I love to bowl, exercise and ride my motorcycle when the weather permits. I believe everything happens for a reason and that God's plan will be revealed in due season. I attempt to live, laugh and love daily. I believe working in the human service field is a humbling experience, and I am thankful for the gifts God has blessed me with. Family is most important to me and without their support and love, I feel life would be far more difficult to tackle.

Recruitment Coordinator

I was born and raised in Phoenix Arizona and have been living in Fredericksburg since the end of 2011. My degree is from Arizona State University and is a Bachelors in Business and Communications. Previously I have worked for Ebay Marketing Solutions and focusing on digital media marketing. My favorite thing about living on the east coast are the seasons and fall is by far my favorite. I have a wonderful husband and son who I love more than anything.

Foster Parent Coordinator

My passion is helping others. When not working, I can be found reading a book or watching a good movie. "Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."


Executive Director

I was excited to find my home with ncgCARE in March of 2010. I have been a long-time athlete, participating in softball, lacrosse and cheerleading since I was 8 years old. I continue to have a passion for fitness and enjoy running in races and competing in physique shows through the National Physique Committee. I have been happily married to the man of my dreams since 2012 and confidently exclaim that my biggest accomplishments in life are my sons.
