I have extensive experience working with children and families in the in the child welfare and mental health systems through family preservation, foster care and adoption non-profit agencies. As a trauma informed professional, I have a passion for child advocacy and believe that every child deserves permanency in a safe, loving, and nurturing home. I am dedicated to helping children find their forever homes and am excited to continue the privilege of assisting families through their adoption journey through CAS.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and reading. My husband, Stephen, and I have two teenage sons, Ben and Peyton. In addition, we have two dogs, Natty and Bentley who keep us on our toes. A fun fact is that Stephen and I are huge Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins and Pirates fans.
