Meet the Staff
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 have always been a strong advocate when it comes to helping children and families. After graduating from Pennsylvania State University, I began my career in counseling and quickly discovered that I found my niche. I realized that there is a great deal of personal satisfaction when it comes to assisting others. I am the father of three children and enjoy spending my free time cheering on the Steelers, Yankees, and my beloved Nittany Lions!!!!
