“Juvenile Assessment and Resource Centers alike are the future of Juvenile Justice in our communities. The focus is on assisting families by intervening earlier, developing partnerships with community stakeholders, utilizing validated screening and assessment tools, and promoting best practices while focusing on the strengths and needs of the family and getting better outcomes in our community. I have seen firsthand the success and positive impact that youth, families, and communities have benefited from because of this work. There is still more work to be done, specifically addressing racial and ethnic disparities in the juvenile justice system, and it is one of my goals through this association to work towards eliminating those disparities. I see myself as a change agent with innovative ideas to continue to help push juvenile justice reform in this positive direction, especially through the growth and further development of Juvenile Assessment Centers and Resource Centers across the country. Therefore, it is an honor and privilege to serve on the National Assessment Center Association board, and I am looking forward to creating many of the same opportunities that I have seen be successful in my own community, as well as new opportunities that will redefine the face of juvenile justice in our country.”
