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.

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.

Kathleen Reynolds


Outreach Director

As with many founders of a non-profit, I had a personal reason for starting Generations. I wanted to honor my sister who had been a victim of abuse. I know that we couldn’t predict future victims, but what if we worked with the abuser? Could we stop the cycle of sexual abuse? The answer was a resounding YES.  For over 25 years, 98 percent of our children go back to their communities as productive citizens. Now, as Outreach Director, I have the privilege of spreading the word and educating our community on this widespread issue.

Scott Stephens


Director of Development

Scott is a native of Greenville, SC, and has been married to his wife Loretta for twenty-nine years. Scott and Loretta have two sons, Clay-20 and Brad-17.   Scott 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.  Scott also serves as the President Elect of Rotary Club of Greenville and as a board member of the South Carolina Board of Social Work Examiners.

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.

Shannon Paradise


Admission and Programs Director - Pathways

I came to Generations in 2007 to help with a research grant project, and remained with the organization because I was amazed at the quality of services being provided. I hold my Master of Social Work degree from the University of South Carolina, and am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with a concentration in Clinical Practice.  I currently serve as the Program Director for Generations Residential Program, where I work to help the team provide the best clinical practice to the residents who require a higher level of care due to struggles with mental illness.

Ginny Savage


Human Resources Director

As the Human Resources Director, I am responsible for hiring and retaining employees committed to our mission. I graduated from Clemson University in 2006, and after spending time working in the corporate world in Atlanta, GA, I relocated back to my hometown of Fountain Inn, SC and began my career in non-profits with Generations. It is so rewarding  to see the changes in the lives of the boys that come through our program as they make the commitment to stop the cycle of sexual abuse and the impact that commitment has on the state of South Carolina.

Steve Reynolds


Operations

After working in the corporate world at Bowater for over 23 years, I decided it was time to make a change, and joined the Generations team in 1991.  I brought financial expertise to our non-profit, where I’m able to apply my skills to help make a difference in the lives of the boys at Generations.  I ensure that the business side of the company is running smoothly so that the rest of the team can focus on delivering the services to help the boys grow into healthy young men.

Debbie Best


Operations Manager

I began my career at Generations as the Business Office Coordinator in 2002, and through my relationships with the residents and staff, came to have a deep passion for our goal of “no more victims.”  At the first graduation I attended, I realized that Generations was a family that I was proud to be a part of.  Through hard work and passion for the mission, I became Operations Manager in 2011, where I oversee the functions of the Business Office for all of the Generations programs.

Heather Smith


Compliance Manager

As the Compliance Manager for Generations, I monitor the quality of services provided and ensure the thorough completion of documentation.  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. I enjoy witnessing the residents transform throughout the program.

Casey Moore


Staff Development Manager

As Staff Development Manager, I work as part of a team to help train new and existing staff so that they may best fulfill Generations’ mission and provide caring and stable relationships for our residents.  I came to Generations fresh out of graduate school with a desire to provide change and inspiration to at risk youth.  However, I continue to call Generations home because of how the boys have changed me. Generations consistently embraces hope and potential in all people regardless of choices they have made.

Mandy Spurling


Quality Assurance Coordinator

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 Coordinator 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!
