Human Resources Coordinator

With Breakthrough since 2015

Marshall has been working in human resources for 24 years. A native of Gary, Indiana and a graduate of Purdue University, he currently resides on the South Side of Chicago. His favorite part of working at Breakthrough is not not only having the ability to say who we serve, but also being able to interact with guests. He loves that the administrative office is not isolated from Breakthrough’s facilities; he gets to see programs in action. Once, he met a man who arrived at Breakthrough after staying in several shelters. The man told him that none of the other shelters are like Breakthrough; Breakthrough is safe. Marshall connected him to Men’s Center staff, and, when he saw him a little while later, the man said, “I’m in.” Marshall is inspired by watching guests like this one come to Breakthrough. In his free time, he enjoys cooking and traveling. Marshall also once jumped out of a perfectly good airplane at 14,000 feet for his birthday, and he would definitely do it again.
