Families and Children

I want to thank my husband, Danny, who supported me in every way while on this journey. Danny, I am so grateful for all you have done for me and with me. You make me a better person and I know you will help me be the best social worker I can be. Shout out to my parents, Miriam and Tim, for their constant encouragement and to my stepdaughter, Makayla, for her patience and grace. I also want to thank God for his love and provision. He is faithful and sustains me. Though at times life has been difficult, a mentor once told me, "The easy life is overrated." I have found that to be true and it motivates me to persevere.
