Meet the Staff
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.
I am the Foster Parent Recruitment Coordinator serving the Richmond area. I am originally from Southern Florida and have a Bachelor's degree in Intercultural Communications from Florida Atlantic University. In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, traveling, visiting the James River with my dog as well as spending time with my friends and family. I am very excited to work Embrace TFC to make an impact in the RVA community.
Foster Parent Coordinator
I have been working in the mental health field for 8 years, primarily with adolescents. I recently joined the Embrace team and love the professionalism and passion that is exhibited within the company. I love helping those in need and demonstrating one's ability to endure obstacles. I enjoy making others laugh and of course smiling.
I have been working in the field of social work for over eight years. My passion is working with foster care youth. I love working with children and families to make sure they have the resources needed to lead fulfilling lives. In my free time I enjoy traveling, cooking, hiking, and spending time with loved ones.
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.
