I was born and raised in Cocoa Beach, Florida. After graduating college at UCF -I traveled and moved around the US and have lived in Ohio, Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Boston to name a few. I have 3 kiddos ranging from 18 years old- 7 years old. I struggled with infertility and miscarriages after I had my first son. The love and admiration I have for my kids can’t even be put into words.
I have a Master’s degree in Criminal Justice and a second Master’s degree in Counseling. I am also a Certified Positive Discipline Educator- which basically means I work with families to teach them strategies, tricks, and tools to use to create a loving respectful relationship with their children and family as a whole. I have worked in the Social Services field my entire career. I am passionate about families, children, and the family unit.
As a child I was removed from my home and placed into foster care. I experienced the effects first hand of a overwhelmed, understaffed system. Ultimately, in order to escape the system, I became emancipated aka divorced my parents.
Now, I am a passionate professional dedicated to working with families and children as they strive to create healthy home environments and providing children with the stable and safe environment they long for. I am a professional speaker on the topics of foster care, adoption, and at risk youth. I truly look forward to working with you!
After spending more than a decade in Human Resources I decided to make the jump into the field of adoptions. Working with adoptive parents and in the adoption field is a true passion of mine. I have been through the struggles of infertility, unsuccessful fertility treatments, and ultimately the sheer joy of adopting our son! I welcome the opportunity to work together and look forward to meeting you and your family.
P.S. Fun Fact: Heather and Margeaux have been friends since early elementary school years!
