I have extensive experience working with children and families in international settings. My passion for adoption began when I was exposed to the vast amount of orphaned children around the world. I believe that every child deserves a forever home with a loving and caring family. I am excited to be alongside families who are beginning the process of welcoming a child into their home. I am involved with several international nonprofit organizations and have also spent time doing mission work overseas. I am a dedicated and passionate person who is eager to serve families on their adoption journey. My experience in Africa includes living and serving in Uganda as a ministry social worker and traveling the United States on an 11 month tour with a group of ten Ugandan children and two Ugandan adults with the Ugandan Kids Choir. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, exercising, and live music.
