Job Title: Home Study Provider
Favorite Bible Verse: Jeremiah I:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Favorite Adoption Story: Adoption is personal to me. I was adopted and I adopted my youngest child from China in 2008. Working in the field allows me the opportunity to see both the joy and heartbreak for families and children. One of my blessings in the field is being able to share my own adoption stories with birth mothers. I was working with a teen birth mother and spoke to her about her plans. Months after the birth of her child, she returned to see me. When I asked about her child, she stated she had made an adoption plan for her daughter. I was surprised and blessed when she said "It was because of your story I made this plan". I am truly blessed to use God's plan in my life to help others.
Education: I have a Doctorate in Counseling and Psychology as the final of my four degrees. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor.
Responsibilities: My role is to work with prospective foster and adoptive families in writing the home study. I am also trained to teach pre-service classes.
