I have been a foster/adoptive parent for over 20 years. I am a self-directed and innovative thinker with a knack for developing creative solutions to complex problems. I am effective at working with children and families who may be in crisis. I try to act as a sympathetic guide and advocate to help them navigate complex and stressful situations. I try to treat every family encountered with discretion and diligent care. I am skilled in responding to reports of child abuse or neglect. I approach situations with a calm and objective eye, and with the well-being of all involved in mind. I provide support to children and parents and make referrals to outside resources whenever necessary. I am seeking a position with the opportunity for new challenges and professional development and advancement. I am a compassionate mom who would listen and build trust to help clients resolve personal issues and achieve life goals.
