VydaNyx Forensic Interviewer of the Year: Shy Watters


The Warren Washington CARE Center’s Executive Director Shy Watters has been awarded Forensic Interviewer of the Year by VidaNyx.

An absolute, well-deserved accomplishment!

Anyone who has had the privilege of seeing Shy work knows that this award comes as no surprise. She is unapologetically authentic and every child she meets sees this and gravitates toward her. She has an ability like no other to seek out and genuinely understand the most difficult life experiences one can imagine. Please know, that is no easy feat, but she does it with grace and finesse.

Her unique ability to empathically listen and respond to victims of trauma is invaluable. Shy’s impact goes beyond the successful prosecution of cases in our community, more importantly, she is often the first safe stop in the journey of healing for many children and families. The team at the CARE Center is beyond proud of her and it is a true honor to work alongside her.
