“I have a strong passion to see every child in a safe, loving, forever family, and I have a deep commitment to seeing safe, loving families prepared and equipped to welcome a child into their home.

Having been on the agency side of the process, I have walked with families through the entire adoption journey—from initial inquiry to placement and then post‐placement. I understand the financial aspect of adoption and how overwhelming and discouraging this can be for families. I care about helping families understand the fees associated with adoption, and have been able to guide and connect them with valuable resources like AdoptTogether. I have personally witnessed families not only meet (and sometimes exceed) their adoption goals, but ultimately be encouraged and affirmed by the generosity of family and friends. I see fundraising as an important part of the adoption process—it shows families their need for others, it invites people in to the journey, and ultimately prepares an even larger “extended family” to love and welcome their adopted child.

I stepped out of social work in the fall of 2014 to begin my own family, but my desire has always been to work in the field of adoption and continue my passion for seeing children become a part of forever families.”
