Tina Graham
Executive Director

I have always believed in the potential and resiliency of people,  feeling that those who have walked similar paths bring a unique and empowering perspective. As a mother of an amazing youth with an autism diagnosis, I was drawn to the work done by our peers at ASK and believe I have found my calling as the director of ASK Family Services. I have immense hope that our experiences can help those we serve achieve their fullest potential and dreams.

Latrieva Boston
Director of Operations

I am so many things but most of all I am a person who wants to help others. I still believe in the “goodness” of mankind and I enjoy working for an agency that is dedicated to helping families of children with developmental and mental health challenges in letting them know they are not “alone”.

Family Services Manager

As the bonus parent to a child with depression, anxiety, and ADHD the challenges that caregivers face every day deserve acknowledgment and awareness. By reaching out to my community we were able to find resources that helped him be successful as a student, friend, and son. Nothing is ever simple or easy but by having someone validate, encourage, and provide assistance navigating the school systems we became better equipped to support him towards success. He became less angry and was able to graduate on time with the rest of his class. In becoming a resource to others who serve our community, I’m able to help our Family Support Partners empower and support others with their own challenges they may be navigating.

Being the parent or caregiver of a kiddo who is neurodivergent or has disabilities presents many unique challenges that no parenting book can prepare us for. That feeling of being overwhelmed can become especially intimidating while navigating unfamiliar systems that provide the supports necessary for them to thrive. With the unique perspective of having "been there" I empathize with families going through similar situations I faced with my three children. As the parent of kiddos who have a variety of diagnoses ranging from ASD to PTSD and Developmental Trauma, I have felt the sting of isolation, wondering if anyone else out there “gets it”. By educating people about the services ASK provides, connecting with other community  organizations and partnering with families who need extra support, I am hopefully having a positive impact on youth and families in our community.  


In my spare time, I play roller derby, make more artwork than I know what to do with, am the mom to three inspiring teenagers, and try to pet all the kitties I come in contact with.

Kim Beachy
Office Coordinator

My name is Kim, and I have been working in human resources since 2001, doing payroll since 1991, and working with human service organizations since 1991. I like working at an organization that is serving the community. I was born and raised in Michigan's upper peninsula, and love traveling there when I get a chance.

Nadiah Dyer-Coronado
Youth Involvement Coordinator

Youth Peer Support Specialist

My name is Nadiah Dyer-Coronado, I am 22 and I am a crazy dog mom. I have 3 adorable dogs, I am newly engaged, and I love coffee!! Growing up mental health wasn’t something that was talked about in my household. As I got older I was able to navigate my feelings and needs to empower myself to be the woman I am today. I love being a part of ASK Family Services and working with all of my amazing co-workers. In this role I am able to help and support the youth and give them the services I wish I had when I was younger. I am still growing mentally, physically and emotionally and I believe that I can overcome anything.

My name is Boneeka Davis and I am 24 years old. I have struggled with depression and anxiety since I was a young teen.

Youth Peer Support Specialist
Transition Team

Hey, my name is Cheye (Shy) Weston, I am currently 25 years old. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety at a young age and more recently have concerns with PTSD. I have been through an emotional roller-coaster I would say my whole life but through it all I see the light at the end of the tunnel, and I also have a broader outlook on the mental health prospective as I was also a guardian to my eldest niece who has Cluster B disorder, depression and anxiety as well. Having guardianship of her has opened my eyes to a whole new perspective, which brought me to this role I’m currently in! I absolutely love youth and helping others! I am currently looking into options for going back to school. I also have a bonus daughter that I absolutely adore, and I love spending time with my little family that I’ve created! I am super grateful to be a part of ASK and super excited to see where this will bring me in the future!

Derek Bradley
Youth Peer Support Specialist


My name is Derek Bradley and I was born and raised here in Kalamazoo. I have always struggled with depression and anxiety and have more recently been challenged with a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder. I truly believe each individual’s story is unique and resilience is possible for anyone through self-care, healthy support systems and acknowledgement of similar experiences. As a Youth Peer Support Specialist, I will share my own experiences to empower youth and encourage self-advocacy. In my free time I love spending time with family, taking road trips and playing disc golf at many of our state’s beautiful courses.


Liliane Nogueira
Family Support Partner

I am from Brazil. I came to the United States to be an exchange student. I decided to stay in Kalamazoo to attend Western Michigan University where I attained my bachelors in Psychology. 


I have 3 beautiful kids. My middle child suffers from depression and social anxiety. It is really challenging for our family to learn and understand about his struggles. 

It is a passion of mine to be able to support families with their difficulties.


Michelle Matheney
Family Support Partner

My name is Michelle Matheney.  I am a mother of 4 and grandmother of 1.  The last of my 4 children was born with some physical and some mental challenges.  Through her 16 years, I have become an advocate for her in every aspect of her life.  I have gained a lot of experience in being a caregiver but I also have faced some challenges as well.  I had to figure a lot of things out on my own so I know how important it is to have a person to talk to and help you gain confidence in one’s self when advocating for your child.   With that being said,  me  joining this wonderful, gracious and supportive staff, here at ASK Family Services, they have been a saving grace for me and I want to be that to our families.  I am glad to be a part of the hidden gem I call them.   




Erin Richardson
                 Child Welfare                          Family Support Partner


My name is Erin Richardson and I have been parenting full-time for the last ten years. I stayed home with my daughter and decided to have her evaluated at 18 months of age because I had a “gut-feeling” that something wasn’t right. She was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder. That challenge was co-existing with physical delays and anxiety symptoms. Our families’ path went directly into utilizing services of all kinds for several years. Over the years she has gained social and coping skills that help get her through her days successfully   . Throughout our journey we became very aware of what mental health looked like for ourselves and in our home. I recently had my middle child evaluated and he has started for ADHD and Generalized Anxiety. As a family we are able to approach these challenges without stigma or shame, being open in our family and having hope for tomorrow. I want families to feel hopeful, supported and build resiliency for their challenging days.
