Mike Amons – Director, Blackstone Valley

Mike oversees WOU’s Blackstone market, which includes northern Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts. In his role, he manages a team of CRSs to deliver vocational supports through 7 different referral sources (BHDDH, ORS, DDS, MRS, DYS, DCF, and schools).

A graduate of Worcester State University, Mike joined WOU in February of 2014 and was promoted into his current position in 2016 from his prior role as a Team Leader in Providence. When WOU identified the Blackstone region as an area of potential growth, a new market was created, and Mike was named as its director.

Mike earned a Basic Employment Services Certificate from the Association of Community Rehabilitation Educators and has his teaching license in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. When he’s not serving in his role as director, he is traveling, enjoying the outdoors, and listening to music.
