As a small organization, each staff member works within several programs and is cross-trained to provide program support where needed. We also employ interns when opportunities exist for program enhancement. (Interested in Interning? Contact us!)

Prior to her work in restorative justice, Jessie worked in environmental sustainability. Since moving to Vermont in 1998, Jessie has worked on farms, been an avid homesteader, and now finds joy in gardening, hiking, and observing the natural world. It was through this work that she came to understand that the many issues facing humanity could only be addressed through social justice; supporting restorative justice practices in Orange County is her small piece of this work.

Kym’s restorative justice work started 30 years ago in King County, Washington. She has held many titles: advocate, coordinator, trainer, investigator, facilitator, and director. Most people also call her a dreamer – and you will too – after you talk to her about her vision for her programs. Come meet her dog, Calvin, in our office.

Wendy is passionate about helping others achieve their personal and professional goals, which she has done over (and again!) since starting at OCRJC in 2019. When not in the office she can be found on the lake in her kayak, in the park on a hiking trail, or attending sporting events.
Diversion & Reparative Case Manager

Kassie has supported restorative justice practices in Vermont since she moved here in 2016. Her work started in the women’s correctional facility, where she volunteered for writinginsideVT. Kassie believes that each person we meet has something to teach us and it is her passion to help others find, articulate, and share their stories. This drives her work with OCRJC.
Diversion, YSASP & Pretrial Services Case Manager

From an early age, Kiara knew that she wanted to work toward helping make the legal system more effective for all persons involved, so naturally the focus of her college career was justice studies. Kiara believes that recidivism rates are impacted significantly when an individual has support from and connection to their community, which is what brought her to work at OCRJC. Kiara is also a Vermont native, which means that you will find her outside in all types of weather.
