WHY I WORK AT CROSSROADS NOLA:
I work at Crossroads NOLA because I believe that if the Church will engage in the foster care system, vulnerable children will have the opportunity to heal, hope, and thrive.
WHAT I LOVE TO DO:
I love to get things done and mark them off my list! Progress on my list often stalls to throw, catch, shoot, kick, or hit some kind of ball with my six-year-old son. Our family also loves to watch the Cosby Show, read, compete (in anything), ride bikes, and cheer for the Georgia Bulldawgs. We love donuts from District Donuts and doro wat from Nile – the Ethiopian restaurant across the street.
WHAT I’M MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT:
I’m passionate about connecting children to families who can give them the unconditional love Christ has given us.
MORE ABOUT ME:
I’m from Georgia, but have lived in New Orleans since August 2005 – that’s right, my hubby (Jon) and I moved here 19 days before Hurricane Katrina hit. How’s that for timing? Jon and I adopted our first son, Eli, from Ethiopia in February 2011. Our youngest son Davis joined our family through adoption from foster care in July 2015. We love connecting to and supporting foster and adoptive parents. Before Crossroads, I served on staff at First Baptist New Orleans where I experienced what God can do when the Church is serious about being his hands and feet.
