Jasmine is primarily a Christian and a mother. She graduated from Hampton University in May of 2008. She is a Certified Dementia Practitioner as well as a Licensed Qualified Mental Health Professional for Adults and Licensed Qualified Mental Health Professional Trainee for Children. Her fulfillment comes from helping others.

Her lifelong career in Human Services began in 2002 when she became a Certified Nursing Assistant during her junior year in high school. Since then, she served in both clinical and nonclinical roles in all levels of healthcare (Acute, Long-Term Care, Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living, Intermediate Care, Outpatient, and Home Health).

Her first experiences in the fields of Behavioral Health, Intellectual Disability, and Developmental Disability began in 2005 at Central Virginia Training Center. After nearly eight years of directing/coordinating therapeutic recreation departments in healthcare, she decided to pursue professional growth in the fields of ID/DD and MH. Doing so, she served as a Specialized Mental Health Services Case Manager, State Hospital Liaison for the Central Virginia catchment area, and Intermittent Discharge Assistant Program Coordinator for the local CSB.

Jasmine has experience providing Therapeutic Day Treatment to adolescents in a school-based setting and providing Community Based Counseling. Jasmine most recently worked as a Regional Program Manager for an agency that provided supports to individuals diagnosed with mental illness, developmental disabilities, and/or intellectual disabilities. The goal was to ensure the adults and children within services were able to live a meaningful life in both home and community settings. Jasmine appreciates professional growth, learning from others, and obtaining intellectual insight.

Jasmine’s greatest joy is spending time with her family. She has two sons. Both of her boys have been diagnosed with Atypical Autism Spectrum Disorder, Pragmatic Language Disorders, and a slew of related and/or secondary diagnoses. Her family has two spoiled dogs (a Great Dane and a Sheepadoodle). Jasmine also finds pleasure in crafting projects and retail therapy.

Shamir Scott

Service Facilitator

Shamir was born and raised in Lynchburg, VA by her single mother and older sister. She still lives in Lynchburg with her cat, Averi. She received a bachelor's degree in Sociology and a double minor in Psychology and Human Services from Randolph College. Shamir started off as a Personal Caregiver/Companion (CNA) to our elderly community for over 6 years. In 2017, she became a Direct Support Profession (DSP) to Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities and Development Disabilities (I/DD).

Over the past 5 years, she learned more about herself from those who don’t get enough credit for being just as “normal” as we are. At her most current job, she is a Program Supervisor. Shamir comes from a family of women and mothers who taught her that no matter what comes your way you keep going. Although journeys come to an end, they taught her that better is always to come. This journey for Shamir starts with her becoming a team member at Moms in Motion and the other as a mom. Advocating for others has always been a passion of hers and she wishes to continue a meaningful career path while balancing her new duties as a mother.
