Heather McQuay

Heather McQuay was appointed as the Executive Director of Baltimore Adolescent Treatment and Guidance Organization, Inc. (BATGO, Inc.) since July of 2020. Heather has over 20 years of experience in servicing youth and families in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. She has served in various leadership roles, including Quality Improvement Manager, Training Administrator, and Program Supervisor for several leading child welfare providers and behavioral health service organizations.

Heather’s expertise includes organizational strategy, quality and compliance, and operational excellence. She has led several CARF accreditations and developed quality improvement plans for a leading child welfare organization, where she was employed recently for over eleven years.

Erika Burke

Office & Quality Assurance Manager

Ericka has worked in various dynamic roles at BATGO, Inc. since February 2000. At BATGO, Inc., She works with a dynamic team of colleagues and Treatment Foster Parents. As a team, they display a source of pride in helping our youth navigate being in out-of-home placements. Ericka values the agency’s delivery of services through a dedication to enhancing the quality of our programmatic offerings. Seeing youths develop their sense of self and transition to independent living has been a rewarding part of my years at BATGO, Inc.

Nadine Anderson

Case Worker

Nadine started out working as a pediatric medical tech and worked in that area for 15 years. I then decided that she wanted to do more, so she went back to school and graduated from Coppin State College and attended the University of MD School of Social Work. As a social worker Nadine has worked for several agencies and maintained several positions over the years. Asst. Program Manager promoted to Program Manager where she managed a Teen Parent Program. Later as a Recruiter/Trainer/Monitor, She was recruited and trained individuals to become foster parents. Nadine maintained this position for 16 years before retiring in 2016. Nadine discovered that she was not ready to sit at home doing nothing, so she returned to work and took a job with BATGO, where she maintained the position of Case Worker. She enjoys working with my youth and is constantly amazed at their resilience and ability to make the best of their situations.
