Get to Know Jessica

  • Favorite hobbies: Reading, spending time with my family, spending time with the ladies group at my church
  • Favorite quote: Psalms 46:10 Be still and know that I am God.
  • What do they like best about their role as a Kinship Leader: I LOVE being able to meet people where they are and helping them know that they aren’t alone on their journey.
  • Personal experience with Kinship care: I received emergency custody of my cousin’s little girls on the day one was born.  We were given temporary custody 2 weeks later.  A year from that date we received permanent custody. We adopted our girls, with a few bumps and obstacles along the way. But I would do it all over again!
