Tell us a little about yourself. How do you spend your time outside of KAAN?
I have a 12 year old daughter Ella and 11 year old son Andrew so they keep me busy.
What is your role on the Advisory Council?
How did you hear about KAAN? How did you decide to get involved in the AC?
From Stacy Schroder, she asked me to be the Treasurer.
How many KAAN conferences have you attended?
10, I think...
What issues/topics related to adoption are you most interested in? (e.g., What types of topics have you presented on or attended at previous KAAN conferences?)
My role is strictly as the Treasure, that's all I feel comfortable with now, I don't go to the sessions. But I hope long after I'm gone, this organization will still be around for people to know - wherever they are in their journey - they have a home.
What do you love most about the KAAN community?
I love that it's a place where you belong - no matter who you are or where you are from - you belong.
What a fun or random fact people might not know about you?
I went swimming where the original Friday the 13th was filmed - Camp Crystal Lake.
