About Emily
Foster Care Assessor and Trainer (and personally a foster and adoptive parent)

I want the families I work with to feel valued and respected by me. I want them to know that I truly care about them. Being a foster parent can be challenging at times, and I don’t want the families I work with to just be there. I want to help educate and support them to be as passionate as I am about kids in foster care receiving high-quality care. Working together makes all the difference for the families and children we serve.
