Division 2

Mary Ann Mayhew

Division Manager

Mary Ann lives in Spotsylvania. She has two daughters and two granddaughters. Mary Ann has worked in the mental health field for more than ten years. She has worked in direct care with children, adolescents, and adults with mental health issues and dual diagnoses including substance abuse disorders. During her travels through the mental health community, Mary Ann noticed a trend - there is a lack of knowledge needed to obtain necessary services. With no understanding of what services were available, she saw individuals suffer. She wants to do more to empower those individuals and hopes to be able to do so as a member of the Moms In Motion team.

Senior Service Facilitator

Briana grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and now resides in Lovettsville, VA. She has been married to her high school sweetheart for 20 years and has two daughters. Briana became a stay-at-home mom after the birth of her second daughter and was a homemaker for about 10 years, focusing on her family.

Briana has many years of experience in working with children and teens in residential settings, in home counseling, Applied Behavioral Analysis services, within the school community as a substitute teacher, as well as working as an attendant herself. She has gained much experience in working with individuals with various mental health diagnoses and differing abilities. Most recently Briana worked as a caregiver for an elderly couple, helping them to and from appointments and adjusting to new diagnoses and disability due to declining age.

Briana came across Moms in Motion and was familiar with Medicaid waiver services as she had previously worked as an attendant. She was intrigued by the opportunity to help families obtain much needed services for their loved ones, but in a different capacity than her previous experiences. She is excited to be a part of the team at Moms in Motion and to help empower families.

Lauren McDaniel

Service Facilitator
Lauren was born and raised in Front Royal, Virginia where she now lives with her young daughter, Justice. Lauren has a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Virginia Commonwealth University, as well as a Paralegal Studies degree from the University of Richmond. After residing in the Richmond area for over a decade, Lauren moved back to Front Royal in 2018 after her father suffered a debilitating stroke. Learning to help care for him, as well as a passion for helping others in general, led Lauren to Moms in Motion. Lauren worked as a Virginia Registered Paralegal in multiple areas of law for over 10 years before joining the team. However, the stress and burnout from the legal field, in addition to Lauren’s desire to serve others, led to a drastic career change. Lauren hopes that she can be the person that can help families with disabilities get the services and treatment they deserve. Outside of work Lauren enjoys traveling to new destinations, cooking, hanging out with family and friends, and helping her daughter learn and grow.
