Meet our Staff

Brian Clark

Executive Director


I graduated from Clemson University in 1995, and immediately began my career at Generations as a direct care staff member.  During the past 21 years, I have served in many different positions within the organization, and in 2015 assumed my current role as Executive Director.  Over 800 young men have come through our doors during my time at Generations, and it’s incredibly rewarding to have played a part in helping them to stop the cycle of abuse.

Amber Cheney

PRTF Program Director


Amber graduated from Winthrop University with her BA in Psychology in 2011, and she received her M.Ed in Clinical Mental Health from Winthrop in 2014. Amber is a licensed professional counselor in South Carolina, and she has spent her career working with survivors of complex trauma. Amber took the role of PRTF Program Director in 2019, and she is honored to serve alongside every member of the Generations team to end the cycle of sexual violence.


Aimee Clark

Admissions and Program Director


After graduating from Presbyterian College with a degree in Sociology, I joined the Generations family in 1998, and since that time have served in a variety of roles within the organization.  As the Program Director for the Group Homes programs, I am responsible for overseeing all program components on a daily basis.  I’m motivated every day by the changes I witness firsthand in our residents, and am proud of the role I am able to play in preventing further victims of sexual abuse.

Heather Smith

Compliance Director


As the Compliance Director for Generations, I monitor our various contracts, coordinate national accreditation, and ensure our compliance with state and federal regulations.  In 2010, I began working as a Residential Counselor part time with the hopes of sharing my counseling skills and empathy for others. I later became an HSP and then PRTF Therapist/QA Coordinator before earning a promotion to the management team in 2014. I enjoy witnessing the residents transform into competent and kind young adults throughout their time in our program.

Chris Leach

Facility Director


As Facility Director, I have the distinct pleasure of working side by side with the Program Directors to ensure the staff and residents are working towards our common goal on all three campuses.  I joined Generations in 2007, and I knew after a few short months that I was in the right place.  I know we make differences in the lives of the adolescent at risk males as evident by the growing number of successful young men who leave our program.

Scott Stephens

Director of Development


Scott is a native of Greenville, SC, and has an extensive background in sales, manufacturing and non-profit organizations. In addition, Scott and his wife Loretta owned Camille’s Sidewalk Café in Asheville, and then downtown Greenville, for ten years. Scott is a graduate of the University of South Carolina- Upstate and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and is currently pursuing a doctorate at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Scott is a past president of the Rotary Club of Greenville and is currently serving as a board member on the South Carolina State Board of Social Work Examiners.

Mandy Spurling

Quality Assurance Manager


I started at Generations right out of graduate school where I had completed my masters in Clinical Counseling from The Citadel Graduate College. I serve as a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) Master’s level Therapist and it has been a joy to watch the residents grow and learn. At this time, I currently work as the Quality Assurance Manager where it is my goal to review clinical record documentation to ensure it meets standards and Generations’ criteria. I am proud to be a member of such a supportive and devoted team that aids in stopping the cycle of sexual abuse!
