Angie Scenic Shockley

Angie Senic Shockley has worked with at-risk children for most of her career. At Elkins Mountain School, a placement for adjudicated youth in West Virginia she served as English/Language Arts Teacher and Principal. During her time at EMS, she implemented several programs which gave the students opportunities to work with the local parks and recreation department and also provided them with options for repaying community service debts. It was during this experience that she realized the positive impact of having at-risk students working with their environments.

Angie left Elkins Mountain School to accept a position as Principal and later Executive Director of Alldredge Academy, a private wilderness program also located in WV. As principal, she gained NCACASI Accreditation for the academic phase of Alldredge Academy and in the process, learned a great deal about outdoor programming and how therapeutics and academics can work hand-in-hand to give students tremendous opportunities to grow personally and academically.

After many successful years at Alldredge, Angie accepted a position with Eckerd Youth Alternatives as Director of the Private Academies. In this position her responsibilities included admissions and marketing for the EYA Private Academies. She continued to work on program development within Eckerd, always looking for new opportunities for the company to grow in regard to outdoor treatment.

In establishing Q&A Associates, Angie has drawn on the experience and knowledge gained over a 20 year career working with at-risk kids and their families. "Opening Q&A Associates is the realization of a lifelong dream to have my own business and focus my skills and talents to help those who are struggling."

Angie is an individual affiliate member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP). She currently serves as the Chair of the National Association of Therapeutic Wilderness Camping (NATWC) and is very active on all levels of the organization. Angie is very committed to the continued development and improvement of outdoor treatment program models within the industry.

Angie holds a Master of Arts degree in Educational Leadership from West Virginia University. She is married to Matthew and they are the parents of four children, Sarah, Michael, Clay and Bode. She enjoys playing guitar and singing, horseback riding, photography, hiking, fishing and hunting. She and her husband own and operate Timberline Riding Stables in beautiful Canaan Valley, WV, where they reside.
