Over the last ten years, Mrs. Gentry has provided therapeutic services for children, adolescents, and families in various therapeutic settings (in-home, outpatient, and school-based). Despite her experience with various populations, Mrs. Gentry’s passion remained working with adolescents involved in the juvenile justice system. In September 2021, Mrs. Gentry participated as a speaker at the Black Mental Health Symposium. She presented the overrepresentation of Black juveniles in the juvenile justice system and the proposed implications that could aid the social concern. In July of 2022, Mrs. Gentry will be a presenter at the National Association of Black Social Workers (NABSW) National annual conference. Mrs. Gentry will be presenting a workshop titled “Shifting the Narrative: Trauma-Informed Care for Black Juveniles within the Juvenile Justice System.” Post-graduation, Mrs. Gentry is committed to starting a non-profit organization that will focus on building services and support through a collective community care support framework in addition to therapeutic support for adolescents involved in the juvenile justice system. When Mrs. Gentry is not advocating and treating adolescents, she enjoys staying physically active (boxing, soccer, cross-fit) and traveling with her close friends and family, consisting of her supportive husband and two children.
