...empowering kids to dream BIG!
Stephanie Hurley Collier
Stephanie Hurley Collier joined Big Brothers Big Sisters in June 2021 from a career in higher education, student affairs, and for-profit international education. Her educational background in Counseling, Psychology, and leadership has prepared her for the person-centric side of this role, while her business experience has poised her for moving this organization forward in growth and purpose. Stephanie was born and raised in the Tri-state area and has resided in Huntington, WV for nearly 20 years. She is committed to the Tri-state and serving with an open heart and an open mind. She is a dedicated wife, mother of two kiddos, Disney enthusiast, and an avid reader.
Lee McCloud has been with Big Brothers Big Sisters for over 20 years. Even after 20 years of employment, Big Brothers Big Sisters is still her “dream job” and she continues to learn more about mentoring and the issues currently facing tri-state youth. Lee has an undergrad degree in Mass Communications and Recreation and has her Master’s in Education. Lee has one child still at home and loves to read and spend time in her backyard at her home in Ashland, KY.
Mandy Perry came to Big Brothers Big Sisters in October 2020. She received a B.A. from Marshall University and has experience in the legal field and private industry assisting in mergers and acquisitions.
Mandy is married to her husband Ryan, and they have two beautiful sons. Being a part of Big Brothers Big Sisters holds a special place in Mandy’s heart as her own biological little sister was diagnosed with a brain tumor and passed away in 2007 at the age of 22. It is a blessing to be a part of an organization that helps to make important connections between Bigs and Littles while at the same time allowing Mandy to honor her little sister Emmy in the process.
Ray Blevins joined the Big Brothers Big Sisters team in March 2022 as the Enrollment Specialist. He comes from a counseling background (MA, LPC) and worked most recently at the Marshall University Counseling Center in Huntington, WV. Before that, he was a School Counselor at Fort Gay PreK-8 in Fort Gay, West Virginia. Ray recently moved to South Point, Ohio with his husband, Jim, and their five fur-children. In his free time Ray enjoys playing board, card, RPG, and videogames, reading, and spending time getting lost in the woods.
Match Support Specialist
Lauren became a Match Support Specialist in August 2020 for Big Brothers Big Sisters. She graduated in April 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in social work from Ohio University Southern. A Chesapeake, OH native, Lauren grew up visiting Huntington often, so she’s no stranger to the area. She enjoys singing on the Worship team at Big Branch Church where she attends, and her hobbies include watching movies with her husband Jo, and playing with her dogs Vetoe, Rudy, and Crash.
