Why I started with Arms Wide:

I started working with Arms Wide because I wanted to continue my work with families and helping to preserve adoptions.

My favorite part about my job:

The favorite part of my job is talking with parents, listening to their needs and finding creative ways to meet them. I also enjoy talking with the children about their activities and receiving artwork from them.

More about me:

I’m married and a proud mother to one son who is in his last year at UH. I have a passion for animals of all types and a proud grandma to our rescue dog, Bandit. I’ve worked extensively with children and families, and one of my passions is helping children in the juvenile justice system reintegrate successfully back into our communities. I enjoy cooking, redecorating my home and traveling with my Cooking Club of 15 years.
