I have been a member of the OCJA since 2015 and held a position as the Central Region Representative before taking on the role of Secretary with the Executive. I have since returned to the role of Central Region Representative.
I am the Youth Justice Services Director at the Boys and Girls Club of Durham and supervisor for four community based programs: Youth Outreach Worker program, Extrajudicial Measures, Extrajudicial Sanctions and the Youth Justice Committee program.
I have worked in community based Youth Justice programs since 2004 in both service delivery and management. I understand and appreciate the challenges that are unique to working in both areas of community based programs. I appreciate the opportunity that the OCJA has provided in allowing me to share my experience to enhance service delivery in the justice field.
