Billie works as a CTA, and she has been with the Chickasaw Nation for the last 6 & half years. Wayne has worked with the Chickasaw Nation for the last 15 years in child support services as a special projects coordinator. He has worked with the County and Tribal District courts, and he loves to serve and make a difference in the lives of the families he serves. Wayne comes from a divorced family, so he uses his connection to help make families realize that the children also suffer from divorces, and he thrives to educate that there is not only a financial need, but an emotional one as well.
