Resource Center Manager
What skills/experience do you bring to the fight: Cynthia grew up in a military family, and is the spouse of a veteran. Her father was in the Marines, her uncle in the Air Force, and her husband in the Army. Both of her brother-in-laws are currently active duty soldiers. She has grown up around the military community and culture, and is familiar with the struggles faced by military families and individuals. Cynthia obtained her Bachelor’s in Social Work from North Carolina Central University in December 2017 and is currently furthering her education as a Master of Social Work candidate at NC State in their Advanced Standing Program, projected to graduate in May 2019. Cynthia has found great joy in working with active duty, veterans, spouses, and dependents over the past year at Stop Soldier Suicide. She hopes to continue to provide this population with the care, support, and resources that they need to thrive.
Favorite pastime: Most of Cynthia’s favorite pastimes have included traveling. She have been out of the country to Okinawa and Korea, and her favorite place within the United States is Hawaii. These experiences have truly helped her become more culturally competent and aware, and she hopes to continue seeing as much of the world as possible in the coming years.
