Favorite Bible Verse: Psalm 27:8, "You have said, 'Seek my face.' My heart says to You, 'Your face, Lord, do I seek.'"
Favorite Adoption Story: I used to work as a children's pastor, and there was a 3rd grade boy in my ministry who was adopted by some family members. A few weeks after arriving home, he shared a testimony about his adoption with the other children at church. He told everyone about his family coming to bring him home, and before they boarded their flight, he got everyone's attention at their gate and excitedly said, "Everyone! This is my Mom and Dad! They have adopted me!" It was so sweet to hear how he saw the character of God through his own adoption.
Education: Bachelor’s degree in Social Work (2016) from Baylor University and a Master’s degree in Social Work (2018) from Baylor University.
Responsibilities: As a Pregnancy Counselor, I counsel and educate expectant parents who are considering adoption. I assist them throughout their adoption journey by helping them make a hospital plan, connect them to resources, facilitate match meetings between the expectant parents and prospective adoptive parents, and offer continual support. As a Foster Care Coordinator, I am helping to develop the foster care program in our Texas office. I will work with families who are interested in fostering children and help them go through the necessary steps in the process.
