Leadership Staff

Scott Bradley - Founder and Program Director

Scott Bradley is an Industrial Engineer who retired with his wife Susan to St Thomas in 2002 from Kittery, Maine. He has 35 years in the manufacturing industry in which he was responsible for operations management, training, and technical research & design. As part of the community he spent many years working with young adults that were “at risk”, “high risk”, gang members, and juvenile re-entry programs. His Christian values and commitment to helping disadvantaged youth drives his passion for community service. Mr. Bradley has cultivated hands-on collaborations which see public, private and faith-based organizations joining together to focus their resources on the youth that are most in need of prevention and intervention services.

Jenny Hawkes - Executive Director

Jenny Hawkes, who moved to St Thomas in 2012, started with MBW in 2014 as Executive Director. Before moving to the beautiful USVI, Ms Hawkes owned a real estate and property management company in New Mexico as well as serving on the local school board and city council. Her passion has always been working with young people and helping them shape their path. Ms Hawkes has seen the tremendous growth at MBW and looks forward to seeing more youth positively changed through the MBW program.

Ms. Stewart - Assistant Program Director

Nakeba Stewart is the Assistant Program Director at My Brother’s Workshop but wears many hats. She is a licensed Social Worker, Mental Health Specialist, and Counselor. Ms. Stewart has 10 years of experience dealing with at-risk youth and utilizes her skills to optimize our trainee’s success both in the workforce and in life. A strong believer in the power of positive thinking and best practices in the workplace, Ms. Stewart works diligently with our trainees on an individual basis. At My Brother’s Workshop, we consider our staff and trainees as part of our family. We also believe that using a holistic approach optimizes the success of our trainees personal and professional growth.

Ms. Reid - Administrative Assistant

Grace Reid is the eldest of 7 children and has always seen herself as a caretaker. She's a graduate of Ivanna Eudora Kean High School in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands and earned her Degree in Criminal Justice from Edward Waters College in Jacksonville Florida. She thought about becoming an attorney, but that all changed after working at a summer camp in the 80's.

Since that time Ms. Reid continued to work with children and young people as a Social Worker, Case Manager, Counselor and Mentor. As the mother of 4 daughters she has no greater pleasure than sharing and helping shape individuals to become the best person possible. She has been blessed to work around people who share this same passion. As a new member of My Brothers Workshop, her passion continues to burn.

Chrystie Payne - Communications Director

Chrystie has called St. Thomas home since 2005. She was thrust into the disaster recovery world after Hurricanes Irma and Maria struck, and with that, became more aware of and involved in MBW's mission and work in the VI. She is honored to be a part of such a wonderful organization and takes pride in sharing the wonderful work of MBW with the community. Her love for the islands, their residents, and MBW continues to grow with each day!
