Brain Injury Connections of the Shenandoah Valley announces their new Clinical Director
Harrisonburg, VA – May 3, 2021 – Approximately 6,000 people in the Central Shenandoah Valley Community are affected with brain injury. In 2020, Brain Injury Connections of the Shenandoah Valley (BICSV) met its mission to help provide options for your neighbors to return to work, school, and live productive and meaningful lives.
Brain Injury Connections of the Shenandoah Valley (BICSV) gladly welcomes Jen DuVon as the new Clinical Director. Mrs. DuVon graduated from Eastern Mennonite University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work and will graduate in May with her Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of North Dakota. Jen has been a staff member with BICSV for nearly 9 years. She has consulted, trained and supervised case managers in the human services setting. She also has conducted needs assessments, developed person-centered individualized services plans, assisted with the Triage Team and facilitated support groups for clients living with brain injury. Additionally, Jen is a Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS) and highly experienced in the field of brain injury services.
Mrs. DuVon shared, “I'm very excited to join Brain Injury Connections’ team in this new leadership role. BICSV does amazing and important work in our community, providing supports and services to persons with brain injury, their families and caregivers. BICSV fills a crucial gap in our community. Without BICSV services, many of our clients and families would fall through the cracks and be left without support. I'm proud of the work BICSV does, and am thrilled to join alongside our staff as the new Clinical Director.”
