Title: Legal Assistant
Responsibilities: I handle all the paperwork (and quite a few phone calls) involved in foster care adoptions, from when we receive the adoption packet through finalization and follow-up.
What is one thing you’d most want people to know about MyersStrickland?
We are here for YOU. Whatever we can do to make your adoption/assisted reproduction legal experience smoother and more comfortable for you, we will do it.
How did you get into adoption law?
I didn’t choose the Adoption Field – it chose me! I was looking for a new position and a good friend recommended me to MyersStrickland. I will be forever grateful that this is where I landed. It has been such a gift to participate in bringing families together, and the team we have here is phenomenal!
What is your favorite part about your job?
When I call adoptive parents to let them know their final hearing has been scheduled. I get tears, whoops of joy, and all manner of wonderful reactions!
Anything else people should know about you?
My favorite things to do: bike riding along CDO wash; yoga classes at the YMCA; needlework (knitting, quilting, sewing, etc.); baking yummy pies that I can’t eat because I’m gluten-free.
