Recent Graduate with Adoption Experience
Having recently completed my MS degree in Community Counseling, I am currently seeking employment with adoption agencies focusing on domestic adoptions. I would be interested in pursuing any opportunities anyone might know of that are available. I am interested in jobs in the Atlanta, GA area as well as a possible relocation to Denver, CO. I am also available to begin work as soon as possible.

Since I am a birthmother involved in an open adoption myself, I am particularly interested in counseling birthmothers. Although I was unable to intern with an adoption agency during my coursework, I volunteered regularly at Bethany Christian Services in Atlanta in support groups and speaking engagements. I continue to be involved in many ways in the adoption field. Therefore, I have extensive personal and professional experience that I am eager to share with others.

Please feel free to contact me regarding any job openings anyone might know about as well further discussing my qualifications. Please find my resume below. Thank you so much for your time.
