Hi my name is Nerissa Scruggs. I have an equal amount of Mental Health and IDD experience of almost 18 years. I started as a premed major at Virginia Tech.

Since then, I have been working in mental health or IDD. I enjoy what I do because I feel that I was born to help others reach their potential no matter where they start in life.
