Over 13 years ago, Barry founded and grew Dixon Social Interactive Services, Inc. (DIXON), a local clinical behavioral health agency. DIXON provides programs such as Substance Abuse Counseling, Family Counseling, Psychological Testing, Forensic Counseling, Psychiatric Comprehensive Services, Parenting Services, and Adult and Adolescent Outpatient Care.

Barry holds many local Board positions in the areas of Human Services.
In 2003, Derria began working for Dixon Social Interactive Services in the areas of quality control and finance. Derria's analytical skills and precision as an auditor afforded much support and development to Dixon during this time. Derria has worked with multiple budgets and accounts. Within the business industry, Derria has managed stock and inventory, performed calculations to convert lab data, evaluated reports, reviewed and rewrote standard operating procedures, troubleshoot instrumentation, projects, procedures, and production problems. In the health care industry she prepared health products for patients through laboratory testing, supervised technicians, lead quality assurance studies, calculated and analyzed reactions, revised routine procedures and train staff. These skills seemed a perfect fit for a mental health agency.
Currently, Derria occupies the position of Quality Improvement and Training Director. She holds a bachelor in science from East Carolina University and is a certified auditor through the American Society of Auditors.
