Blaise is an 11 year member of the Raleigh Fire Department. He is currently in graduate school at North Carolina Central University pursuing his Master’s in Mental Health Counseling. Blaise’s own personal struggles have lead him to pursue this degree as he hopes to break the stigma of counseling and reaching out for help among first responders and African-Americans in his community. When his head is not in the books, he spends every minute of his day being an awesome dad to his wonderful children, Gabe and Gracie. Being a member of the North Carolina Triangle Peer Support team is an honor for Blaise as he genuinely enjoys helping people. He is looking forward to all of the positive things the organization is about to do!
