Welcome to the Five Stars team Delana!
We are thrilled to announce our continued commitment to engaging with community partners through the latest addition to our team, Delana Epps-Avery, the Community Engagement Coordinator for the Five Stars Hotel Employment Initiative!

Holding a master's degree in human services and family counseling, she has previously worked in outreach for the United Healthcare Medicaid initiative and coordinated life skills services.
