Jill has been with the CHCAC since January 2018. Before becoming a Family Advocate, she served on the Board of Directors for over 2 years. Jill is passionate about child abuse prevention and working in the community on behalf of children. Jill loves connecting with children and families and supporting them on their journey to healing. When not at the CHCAC, you will find her cheering on and supporting her four children in one of their many activities or events.
Tia has been with the CHCAC since May 2017. She is the family advocate, which means that she is the person who has the most contact with clients and is in charge of helping families obtain different services throughout the county. When Tia isn’t at the CHCAC, she is coaching volleyball, playing with dogs and binging on Netflix. She is the middle of 5 children and her parents own a restaurant in Owego, NY. The worst thing she ever did as a child was call 911 on her oldest brother because he wouldn’t let her get a drink from the water fountain.
Jamie has been with the CHCAC since January 2017. As a Forensic Interviewer, Jamie loves being able to talk with courageous kids and listen to their stories. As a Program Coordinator, she enjoys managing the schedules, intakes, and details that make the CAC function efficiently. When not at work, Jamie loves reading, glamping, kayaking, and hiking local trails. At heart, she is a hipster and can be found in local coffee shops reading good books and drinking vanilla lattes.
Katy has been with the CHCAC since 2014. She has held almost every position within the child advocacy center. In April 2017, she graciously accepted the role of Executive Director. She brings years of experience and has acquired all the necessary skills needed to be the CHCAC’s “chaos coordinator” and provides a strong voice on behalf of the children in our community. When Katy is not running day to day operations at the CAC, she is an avid sports fan, a die hard soccer mom and a proud supporter of Amazon Prime.
