Meet the RamFORWARD Team:







My name is Phylicia Deam and I am a lifetime native of San Bernardino County. I first attended San Bernardino Valley College, then transferred to Cal State San Bernardino where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology. Soon after I went on to receive my Masters of Arts in School Education with a PPS credential. I am currently a Counselor at Victor Valley College where I am the counselor for the RamFORWARD Program, serving students who have been formerly incarcerated or impacted by the criminal justice system. I am also a counselor for the First-Year Experience program where I help first-time college students acclimate to college life. 

My passion is to help students find their “why” while making their “how” as easy as possible. I do so by providing holistic support during their educational experience at VVC and using my knowledge to help navigate student’s journeys until they reach their goals.
