I am the newest member of the Adoption Options team, and am thrilled to begin my journey in the field of adoption! After graduating from the University of Calgary in early 2015 with my BSW, my interest in working with children and families flourished. This passion led me towards work within a few community agencies involving family support with newborns as well as foster care. My time at these agencies further inspired an interest for me with Adoption Options, which lead me to pursue a career opportunity in March 2016. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work at the Adoption Options Calgary office full time, and am certain that this work will continue to mold me into the ever-learning social worker I strive to be!
I am truly honoured to work with such a passionate and caring team, as well as with such wonderful birthparents and adoptive families. There is so much compassion and love within this community! I look forward to the meaningful people and experiences that are to come. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my partner and our families, friends, and pets - whether we are cooking (and eating), watching movies, or exploring the outdoors.
