Jim Bernat

Administrator, Rappahannock-Rapidan Community Services Board and Area Agency on Aging

2010: I live in Culpeper, Virginia. I began my career with the Rapidan-Rappahannock Community Services Board as a substance abuse counselor, working with many people who had criminal records, before working on my master’s degree. A decade later, I am an administrator for this agency, charged with supporting and improving the work of 300 employees in three clinics serving thousands of people with mental health problems.
