Meet Gareth

Gareth Fenley is a professional social worker, entrepreneur, and community volunteer. A proud graduate of the University of Georgia (2004), Gareth has been a homeowner in Walton County since 2018. She lives just south of Monroe near the town of Good Hope.

As the founder and owner of Seven Points LLC, Gareth works from home. Individually and in courses of all sizes up to hundreds of students, she instructs learners at all levels. Gareth specializes in exam preparation, especially for social work licensing. She hosts free (pro bono) study groups for social work exam candidates every Sunday evening on Zoom.

Gareth was born in California in 1961 to a young married couple, Dean and Peggy Fenley, who moved the family to Guam to begin working as schoolteachers. Next they moved to Indiana as Dean, an Army veteran, took advantage of the G.I. Bill to earn a doctorate in education, and Peggy earned a masters degree. The family moved to Missouri and then Illinois, where Gareth placed at the top of her class in Springfield High School. She earned a bachelors degree in Government from Oberlin College in Ohio, then began a career in writing and editing that took her to Oregon and eventually to Atlanta. Since that year, 1989, Gareth has lived in Georgia and South Carolina, taking root as a permanent Southern transplant.

From 2006 to 2013, Gareth worked as a founding member of Project GREAT (Georgia Recovery-Based Educational Approach to Treatment) at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. In presentations around Georgia and the United States, her team trained psychiatrists, other physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurses, administrators, and healthcare researchers. The American College of Psychiatrists recognized Project GREAT with its Award for Creativity in Psychiatric Education in 2012.

Gareth has been honored with a national Multicultural Outreach Award by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and inducted into the NAMI Georgia Hall of Fame.

Gareth is a member of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church. She has been married to her wife, Judy, since a Supreme Court ruling made it possible in 2013. They have three dogs and a cat.
