Sofia Fernandez, HR Development Specialist

“I previously worked at Epiphany Management Group. At Summit DD, I look forward to building new relationships and helping make a positive impact. In my personal time I enjoy hiking and kayaking with my husband. I also enjoy spending time with my son and my 3 cats.” – Sofia Fernandez, HR Development Specialist

Amy Kelly, Community Engagement Coordinator

“Prior to joining Summit DD, I worked for nearly 6 years in the field of domestic violence. In starting as the Community Engagement Coordinator at Summit DD, I am most excited about joining a workplace culture that is built upon a genuine community of caring and dedication to inclusion for all. Outside of work, you can catch me spending most of my time soaking up the days with my 8 year old son, Gavin. He is the light of my world. I also stay busy with my “fur-baby” Link. Outside of spending time with my boys, I also enjoying running and doing yoga (when I can actually find the time!), perusing local thrift stores for bargains, cozying up with a good book, and starting my day off with a big cup of strong coffee.” – Amy Kelly, Community Engagement Coordinator

Jasmine Truex, Service and Support Administrator

“I had worked for Child Guidance & Family Solutions for almost 7 years, with the last 4 years as an early childhood mental health consultant. I am looking forward to building relationships and supports with families and the individuals to assist in making their lives easier. My husband and I have two young daughters (almost 5, and 1), along with two dogs Thor and Loki. I enjoy Cleveland Sports, love All things Christmas and spending time with my family and friends.” – Jasmine Truex, SSA

Kristal Brown, FCFC Wraparound Service Coordinator

“I worked for Stark County Children Services for nearly 15 years holding multiple positions with most recent position Family Search and Engagement specialist. I look forward to a change of pace, a change of the type of work I was doing and the environment,  as well as looking forward to working with a large, diverse group of people, who have shown kindness, friendliness and a sense of belonging. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, catching up with friends, traveling, playing games, walking baking and trying new recipes.” – Kristal Brown, FCFC Wraparound Service Coordinator
