Meet our Staff

Michaela Horvath

Interim Executive Director

I graduated from Radford University in 2015 with majors in psychology and Spanish with a minor in criminal justice. I went on to complete my graduate degree at Winthrop University with a Master of Education in counseling with a concentration in clinical mental health. Throughout graduate school, I interned at a psychiatric residential treatment facility working with juvenile offenders. My passion for working with this population led me to Generations following graduation in 2017. I started as a Master’s level therapist at Pathways and have since worked in several positions. As the Interim Executive Director, I am working closely with the Board of Directors, the management team, and all other employees at Generations to ensure the residents’ programmatic and clinical needs are being met accordingly, the day to day operations are running smoothly, and the company as a whole is moving in a positive direction. I look forward to working toward ensuring the success of this organization as well as the success of each resident we serve.

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.
