Division 10

Tyonna Gallimore

Division Manager

Tyonna began her journey in the world of disabilities when she met a family that was fostering a little boy with cerebral palsy. She was an attendant for him and knew how much that waiver meant to him. Tyonna has also worked in DSS and seen how much this program has helped families who otherwise would not be able to function due to constant needs. Her goal is to assist a family in getting the most out of the waiver program.

Gwen Riggleman

Service Facilitator
Gwen’s compassion and concern for others led her to pursue her education in the helping professions. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master's in Human Services. She has worked with the elderly and those with various disabilities, both in her academic background and in her career. While raising her family, she entered the Hospitality arena and became a Conference Planner, a role that allowed her to work from home and be with her children. Then, from 2010 through 2021, she was compelled to step out of the professional world to assist her elderly parents. Her dad was continuing in a long journey with cancer, while her mother simultaneously had one with Alzheimer’s. Eventually, after her father had passed, she and her family brought her mom to live with them for the final 3-1/2 years of her life. Sharing this amazing time with her parents over many years was not always easy, but it was truly the honor and blessing of a lifetime. She cherishes the precious memories! Now on the other side of this journey, Gwen fully understands the 24/7 challenges families and caregivers experience. She desires to walk alongside others as they care and seek the very best for their loved ones. Gwen is married and has three children. She also has a German Shepherd and six cats. She is excited to be able to serve you, your family, and the community!

Heather Craig

Senior Service Facilitator

Heather loves to help people! She started her professional career as a teacher and taught 4th grade and then middle school for 5 years. She loves giving back to the students and the daily creative ideas they would share with her. She got married in 2013 and soon realized that without both her and her husband working multiple jobs, they would not be able to sustain themselves on her teacher's salary. This led to Heather working in the restaurant industry for a few years. She started out as a single unit restaurant manager in 2014 and moved up to district manager before she left in early 2018. She found herself wanting to work in a place that gave her the same sense of giving back and joy through interaction with others that she found in education. So, she started working with Goodwill in 2018 in their Supported Employment department which allowed her to assist individuals with disabilities in finding and keeping a job. Heather had finally found her niche. She had the wonderful opportunity to help people find jobs they never thought they would be able to work and support them in learning those jobs and accomplishing the tasks necessary daily. During her work as a Job Coach and Employment Specialist with Goodwill, Heather was then introduced to Moms and just knew that this would be able to help further her calling to help people. She started with Moms in December of 2020 and has loved every single minute of it. She is so excited to be a part of this team!

She holds a Bachelor's in Healthcare Administration from Mary Baldwin University and has served as an Assistant Director of Admissions, as well as a Social Services Coordinator for a large healthcare organization. While her professional endeavors have offered many distinctive, edifying experiences, Lindsey’s most important role has been as a mother.

With a belief that accessible, sustainable support can encourage and empower, coupled with a passion for social equity, Lindsey desires to “be good and do good” in every facet of her personal and professional life.
