Serving Divisions 6, 7 & 8
Peter is a New Jersey native who now resides in Mechanicsville, Virginia. At the height of the Covid-19 crisis, Peter's mother became gravely ill. She was hospitalized and required 24-hour care upon returning home. Peter quickly discovered that navigating the Medicaid waiver system could be challenging and, at times, overwhelming. It was during that process he found Moms in Motion. Peter was so moved by the compassion, advocacy, and person-centered service of Moms in Motion that he wanted to become part of the team!

Shatayah holds a Master's in Public Health and loves being of service to others and believes that through advocacy and education communities can become empowered. Her experience working with Alzheimer's and Dementia patients has encouraged her to learn more about disabilities such as Tourette Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Microcephaly, and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Working with patients who have disabilities is the most enriching work that she has done thus far. She was led to Moms In Motion to continue that work and decrease barriers to healthcare for persons with disabilities. She is excited to gain new skills and learn from the Moms In Motion Community.
