Marshall is a Martinsville native, retired from a 27 year career in local law enforcement, including over 2 years with the Henry County Sheriff's Office and almost 25 years with the Martinsville Police Department.  From 2012 to 2019 he was the Crisis Intervention Team Coordinator for Piedmont Community Services, a role in which he oversaw a program that trains local law enforcement and first responders in Martinsville, Henry County, Patrick County and Franklin County to more effectively deal with persons with mental health and substance use challenges in order to steer them away from incarceration and toward treatment.  He has been with WeCare since December 2012.  In his current position he is tasked with overseeing the day-to-day operations of WeCare and working closely with the staff and the board of directors in order to ensure that we continue to be of service to the community as a valuable resource for individuals with mental health and substance use challenges.  Marshall has two children:  a son who currently works in local law enforcement and a daughter who will graduate from Appalachian School of Law in May 2021.

Kathy Otto - Transportation Specialist/Peer Recovery Specialist in Training

Kathy was born in Key West, Florida and moved around quite a bit as a child until her mother settled in Henry County in the late 1970s.  She attended Drewry Mason High School and graduated from Magna Vista High School in 1990.  She was born into addiction and continued to be in active addiction for 44 years, until she landed at WeCare.  When she first arrived at WeCare, she was homeless and unemployed.  Through her determination and a helping hand from WeCare, she has come to a point in her life where she is clean and sober.  She has a place to live, her own car and her job at WeCare.  In her spare time Kathy likes to read and practice "dirt therapy", working with plants and flowers both at her home and at WeCare.  Kathy says "It's not what I have been through in my life that defines who I am, it's how I got through it that has made me the person I am today."
