Cortney Tabb, LCSW (pronouns: she/her) recently became the new director at Children’s Advocacy Center of Susquehanna & Wyoming Counties. We asked Cortney a few questions to learn more about her background and welcome her to our team of CAC leaders across the state.
How long have you been in the CAC field and what brought you to it?
I officially entered the CAC world in the beginning of July. However, I have worked in other positions that interacted with CAC’s—which is how I was first introduced to the model. I’ve been working with victims of abuse in other capacities since 2010.
Who or what serves as inspiration for your work helping child victims and their families?
The inspiration for my work is simply just wanting to better the lives of child victims. Being able to help them tell their story is what drives me to show up each and every day.
What’s your favorite thing about the county or city you serve?
I am fortunate to serve two counties and—although both are rural—the community members provide so much support for each other and the community as a whole.
Is there a new initiative or project on the horizon at your CAC? Can you tell us what you’re most excited about in the new role?
Our CAC is currently in the process of relocating and restructuring. I am excited to re-open our center and begin building our program and offering the services that are most needed in the community.
