I have been blessed with a heart for working with children and families. I have been the director of Mt. Top Youth for Christ in the Garrett county, Maryland and Somerset county, Pennsylvania areas. While there I ran several programs of gym nights in local high schools for any and all kids in that high school and community. I ran a bible quiz program for approximately 200 kids and during that time my husband and I served as Youth Sponsors for approximately 30 kids at our local church.
After that I was Community Service Restitution Director in Allegany County, Maryland for the Juvenile Services, for the State of Maryland for 12 years. Upon my arrival in Virginia I was a Foster care/Adoption Specialist for Shenandoah Valley Social Services. Then I performed Therapeutic Day Treatment in an area school for Family Preservation Services.
In these roles, I have worked with both the child and the family and have left a piece of my heart with each person I have had the privilege to serve. Here at Adagio House, I'm privileged to be a resource for the clients in meeting any needs that they struggle with and in the process get to continue sharing my heart. That's why I do what I do here.
