Our Team


Neftali Hernandez

Data & Process Quality Coordinator

Neftali is the Data & Process Quality Coordinator. After earning her psychology degree at Southwestern A/G University, Nef joined our team at Arms Wide.

Why I started with Arms Wide:

I first learned about Arms Wide through my sister. Since I’ve always loved helping kids, but preferred a behind-the-scenes role in the adoption and foster care process, this position fits me really well.

My favorite part about my job:

I can’t pick just one! I think Arms Wide’s policy of promoting a work-life balance and self-care is wonderful, and I like all my fellow employees. However, probably the best part of all is seeing kids who had a rough start to life finally succeed and thrive in a healthy environment.

My least favorite part:

My least favorite part is hearing about the difficult circumstances which brought a kid into foster care.

More about me:

As the oldest of five, family is incredibly important to me, and I’m passionate about helping kids in need find the right family so that they can thrive.
