Department of Veterans Affairs
National Coordinator, Veterans Justice Outreach
Washington DC
As the National Coordinator, Veterans Justice Outreach (VJO), U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, I contribute to the development of national policy, provide guidance to the field on operational matters, and represent the VJO program with internal and external audiences.  

Prior to my role as VJO National Coordinator, I served as a Health System Specialist in the Office of the Assistant Deputy Under Secretary for Health for Clinical Operations where I worked closely with senior VHA leaders on healthcare administration.

Prior to my work in VA Central Office, I spent nine years in the field serving as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at the Charles George VA Medical Center in Asheville, NC. I began my VA career in 2009 as a local Suicide Prevention Case Manager, then Suicide Prevention Coordinator. In 2011, I transitioned to the Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) program where I served as the Veterans Justice Outreach Specialist, building and growing the local program until 2018. Throughout my tenure serving as a Veterans Justice Outreach Specialist, I was instrumental in the development of Buncombe County’s (Asheville) Veterans Treatment Court. In support my HCHV team, I also worked closely with my community’s efforts to end Veteran homelessness in Buncombe County.
