James Mackey, MSW, DHSc

National Program Manager

Prior to joining the Transitions Clinic Network as National Program Manager, James worked as a community health worker and then program manager and supervisor of case management with Community Medical Centers in Stockton, California. James received his bachelor’s degree from the University of the Pacific in 1987, a master of humanities degree from CSU Dominguez Hills in 2008 while incarcerated, completed the University of the Pacific (UOP) Master of Social Work program, and a Doctorate of Health Science degree.  During his twenty-eight years of incarceration, he spent 25 as a participant, facilitator, and mentor in self-help programs.  Ten years as a clerk, and 7 years as a mental health aide while incarcerated prepared James for many roles, but none could have fit more perfectly than the role of social worker/community health worker and TCN national program manager.
