Reed and two runners-up, Adrianne Bell and Aleisa Sells, were honored for their achievements during an awards dinner in November with Devereux’s national Board of Trustees, members of the organization’s senior leadership team, and members of the Devereux Pennsylvania Advisory Board.

Sells, a case coordinator at Devereux Colorado, will receive a $10,000 fellowship to pursue her Master of Social Work at the University of Denver.

“I am incredibly proud of Tracy, Adrianne and Aleisa for their dedication and commitment to our organization and the individuals and families we serve, as well as their determination to take on new challenges, further their education and excel in all they do,” said Devereux President and CEO Carl E.

Achieving dreams through continuous education

Reed joined Devereux Georgia in 2000 as a direct care professional, before being promoted to program supervisor in 2004 and program manager in 2010. As program manager, Reed oversees a team of direct care staff who serve and support adolescent girls struggling with severe mental health challenges.

“I am eternally grateful to Devereux for providing me with the opportunity to further my education, and my colleagues in Georgia for their continued support and encouragement,” explained Reed. “With my master’s degree, I plan to become a licensed social worker, helping victims of child sex trafficking. I hope to increase my knowledge of mental health disorders as it relates to the commercial sexual exploitation of children and work to develop new and enhanced treatment approaches.”

Yoga Teacher and Wellness Advocate Melissa Ruiz is Today’s Honoree

I’m Melissa and I’m a RYT 200 yoga/meditation teacher and a doTERRA Wellness Advocate. I grew up playing sports in NJ and formally a WNBA cheerleader (that part of my life was so WILD). Today I’m most inspired by heath and wellness and living a toxic free life. I’m a minimalist who lives in a #tinyhome and obsessed with being eco-friendly and sustainable. I believe the best way to increase our overall health is by cutting out the toxins in our lives. And I’m not just talking about the products we use but toxic situations, toxic thoughts and toxic foods. So get into a comfortable seat at the top of your mat (just kidding this isn’t yoga class) just get comfy and cozy because I’m going to teach you everything you need to know to start your essential oil journey the right way! And when I say “we have an oil for that” I literally MEAN we have an oil for everything! (I’m not kidding about this part).

Author Pieter Noomen is Today’s Honoree

Born in the Netherlands, I, Pieter Noomen, completed doctoral studies in theology and pastoral psychology at the Free University of Amsterdam and became senior minister of three Protestant churches. Later I worked as a psychotherapist and as a staff member of a Los Angeles metropolitan church. I was involved in mental health issues like suicide prevention and hospice. Retired now, I reside in Hollywood, California, U.S.A.

I hesitate to provide specific personal data, not because there are things to hide, but because my not spectacular background may, in a negative way, influence readers who are not familiar with the world in which I grew up and later lived: the Western European and the North American culture.

The particulars of my life as an average person are not too interesting, except that they may, hopefully, lead to the wondering, “If someone like him was given the possibility to be in direct contact with the full, the Real Reality, while still on earth, then it must be possible for me, too.”

My education, studies, jobs and personal interests follow a rather straight line: classical schooling, theological and psychological university training, degree and practice, being senior minister in three churches and, since coming to the U.S.A. in 1972 , also staff member at a psychiatric clinic and in private practice as a psychotherapist.

My personal spiritual path widened substantially – unexpectedly and quite sensationally – about 25 years ago. As factors involved I see: being unhappy with my own neglecting to think things through; learning new introspection methods; getting older and events in my personal life.

Yet definitely, a deciding factor was my becoming familiar with the insights of Dr. Peter D. Francuch (1934-2001). See Epilogue. In his way, he communicated with what he called ‘the Positive State’. I then read up on, and met, others who also experienced a direct, personal connection with the One Who Is Life It-/Her-/Himself.

My own experiences on the spiritual level – dealt with throughout this Website – didn’t change my personal external circumstances, that is, not on the surface. Yet, completely new became that now I can approach all external and internal ‘facts’ from having knowledge of the real ‘facts’ behind our ‘facts’.

This Website reports all the information I received. Access to the Source of that information is available for any human being who truly desires to connect with the One Full, Eternal and Universal Reality.
