Zumba keeps Heather grounded and lowers her stress levels....

No matter what, she can depend on her fun, energetic, supportive group of women to laugh while they work out together!

I'm originally from New Jersey, but now I'm an Investigator at the Williamsburg Police Department, and one thing I like about the Trauma-Informed Community Network is that it's a group of individuals with different backgrounds who care about educating on trauma. The more we know, the more we can help and understand!

My psychology degree from CNU allows me to better understand people and why they may act the way they do and how to respond appropriately.

As a police officer I frequently see and interact with community members who are dealing with trauma. My role is to first ensure immediate safety of all parties, then to recognize the trauma and finally to get the persons in crisis to the right resources. In fact, all of us at the Williamsburg Police Department are Crisis Intervention Team trained and that means we can better help those going through a crisis. We maintain relationships with organizations who are doing the work in the community which keeps us informed on what might be adding trauma to a person’s life. 

Trauma shows up in my life through work, and so it's important to recognize signs and triggers of trauma, so that we can best be there to help one another. I try to keep my heart filled with joy and hope by having a positive mindset. Not everything is permanent - pain and bad days are temporary. I surround myself with a selective group of people who share the same positivity, and always look towards the sun when in the dark.
