Dear SCCA Members,

Thank you for electing me as your new President of the South Carolina Correctional Association (SCCA).  I am elated that you have trusted me as your new leader! 

I am the Warden of Manning Re-entry/Work Release Center and have worked with South Carolina Department of Corrections for twenty-two years. My SCDC tenure has extended from Clinical Correctional Counselor to now Warden. Previous positions include Clinical Correctional Counselor (1998-2002), Clinical Supervisor (2002-2008), Branch Chief of SHOCK Incarceration (2008-2012), Program Manager of Clinical Services (2012), Associate Warden of Programs at Kershaw Correctional Institution (2012-2017) and Associate Warden of Operations at Kershaw Correctional Institution (2017). I am a certified Peer for the South Carolina Department of Corrections Critical Insistent Stress Management Team.  I obtained a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from South Carolina State University. I am a SC Licensed Social Worker and certified Correctional Behavioral Health Professional. I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.  My professional memberships include South Carolina Correctional Association(President-Elect), American Correctional Association, South Carolina Law Enforcement Officer Association and Correctional Peace Officer Foundation. I have been married 22 years to my loving husband Darrell and two sons; Donovan (20) and Devin (19). 

My motto is “Be kind and merciful. Let no one ever come to you without going away better and happier.”

Again, thank you for allowing me to serve as your 2019-2021 President.  I have been a dedicated member of the SCCA for many years, and I am committed to its success during my tenure as well as continued support in the future.
