Latasha Oliver

Western Outreach Coordinator

Hello everyone, my name is Latasha Oliver and I am the new Western Outreach Specialist for Veritas HHS. I am originally from Northern California and I moved to Roanoke, VA 4 years ago. A hobby of mine that I enjoy doing is going to the local gym and playing volleyball a few times a week. I also have a background of working with children in special education, and before becoming the new Western Outreach Specialist, I was previously a Special Education Teacher. I truly believe that with this experience, that I will be able to help families with establishing paternity and helping to ensure that fathers are on their children's birth certificate.

Brandon Ventura

Richmond Outreach Coordinator/Hispanic Liaison

My name is Brandon Ventura, I was born in Washington DC and grew up in the northern Virginia area for most of my life. I have an extensive hospitality background working in the DC area and western Michigan, most recently in downtown Grand Rapids. I love to make good impressions, make others feel welcomed and valued in my interactions, and see what kind of impact my effort can create. I’m a second-generation Salvadoran, with both parents emigrating from El Salvador in their early teens and meeting in Washington DC in high school. My interests include foreign culture, biology, and zoology. I’m excited to see what I can bring to the Virginia Paternity Establishment Program and help spread awareness to the community I’ve been a part of my whole life.
