Growing up in Kalamazoo, Vershurn has spent many years working and building professional relationships in this community. Realizing that this community has so much to offer Vershurn has dedicated his talents to working in the nonprofit sector to give back to the community that has given him his start. When asked what brought him to Prevention Works, he replied: “Being so deeply rooted in this community I’ve come to realize that when we as human beings experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. One of my greatest passions is bringing healing to people who have been through a stressful experience. At PW I am able to help my participants, who include children, adults and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships. As, Family Programs Coordinator I am able to give family a tool to fight back in this world. A tool that forever grows and develops as time moves forward.“
When he is not at Prevention Works, Vershurn can usually be found hanging out with friends and family, traveling or spending time with his dogs, Remy and Rango.
