I am the Deputy Director of the Office of Well-Being for the Child & Family Services Agency. Formerly the director of Child and Youth Services at the DC Department of Behavioral Health, I joined CFSA in February and am a proponent of interagency collaboration. I’m directing and coordinating activities among a broad-based group of partners to make District child welfare a trauma-informed system.
