I began work on my Masters in Social Work at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock when my youngest child was a senior in high school, graduating when I had a truly “empty nest”. I have three adult children. My interest has always been in helping parents and children, so working with AAU is a natural fit. My experience in raising daughters has helped in building relations with birth mothers and adoptive parents. Participating in the adoption process is rewarding and I hope to help make the experience a good one for all involved.
