Meet Our Staff
Barbara Usack, CHES
Although in administrative positions most of her life, Barbara always found ways to help people at work, as a volunteer, and in her personal life. She returned to school to earn a Bachelor of Science in Public Health Education and became a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES.)
She collaborates with others to support people, programs, and initiatives, contributing to a friendly and efficient working environment and was thrilled to find a perfect fit with the Family Success Center network. She joined Oceans Family Success Center in July and became Director in December, 2017.
Daquane Bland is the Family Partner at Oceans Family Success Center. He is a long-time resident of the greater Asbury Park Community and has been very involved in the lives of our youth, including advocacy and sports. He is involved with orchestrating and participating in community outreach and events. He comes to Oceans FSC with a Bachelor's Degree in Child Advocacy and Policy with a minor in Social Work from Montclair State University. His background, education, and outgoing and caring personality are a perfect fit for our center!

Catherine joined Oceans FSC in August 2018 and has worked for more than a decade galvanizing volunteers and planning events for local charities, most recently the veterans' charity Ma22.
