Chief Operations Officer
Deedee has been an advocate for children and families for over 20 years. Her unique educational background that couples Information Systems Management with a doctorate in Child and Family Psychology is the perfect combination for ensuring top quality behavioral health services. As the Chief Operations Officer, Deedee oversees Clinical and Forensic program improvements and new program development such as the Family Wellness Program. She is dedicated to an open approach to leadership which leaves her available for feedback from both staff and clients in all areas of quality improvement. Over the years, she has worn many hats at All Faiths—from grant writer, to Development, to Continuous Quality Improvement. Her passionate commitment is the elimination of unnecessary suffering in the lives of children—and she is equally focused on ensuring that the heroic staff of All Faiths have a healthy balance in their professional and personal lives.
Deedee is our resident artist—her artwork graces the All Faiths office and many of our fundraisers. Many of her art pieces reflect the mission of All Faiths…hope, healing, hearts, balance, and “villages”—and she truly believes that it takes a village to raise a child. Deedee strives to offer a beacon of hope and reminds everyone that every child matters in our community—and that child should deserves love and respect. Despite long years of dedication to what is often heart-breaking work, it is not uncommon to see her sharing joy. She will tell you that the only thing in this world that we can control is how we respond to the cards we are dealt by life. “Choose happy. Choose gratitude. Choose to leave positive energy wherever you go.”
