Kelly Athey

Site Director

I earned my degree from Radford University in sociology and brought with me to Embrace more than a decade of experience working with children in the community setting. I am married and have three beautiful children. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and also love to read when I can find the time. I am passionate about giving back to the community I grew up in, helping children and families in the process.

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."


Angela Edmonds

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.
