Becoming a parent is life changing. Creating your family through adoption can add additional twists and turns to your journey. On “Adoption Unscripted,” we create a safe place for families on that journey to "unpack" all they’ve encountered along the way. We have real life conversations with parents, adoptees, first families and industry professionals who bring the amazing experience of adoption to life. We create real life strategies when parents get stuck, unravel myths, inform parents of the wonderful resources, and introduce them to experts and advocates in the field.

I have worked directly with children and families for over 25 years. I have created and implemented family-centric programs in both the private and public sectors for law enforcement, public schools, colleges, nonprofits and government agencies. I have designed mentorship programs, experiential education programs and written curriculum for at risk youth. In 2010, I co-founded Anywhere Childcare. We work with the US Military to provide family programs for the children of deployed soldiers in the National Guard and reserves nationwide. Our programs focus on creating strong bonds to ensure the families stay connected during deployment. Two years ago, I started Seeing Color, a consulting and coaching business. I work one-on-one with parents who have adopted transracially. We also have a community where we host family activities, workshops, and educational opportunities. Together we work on the complex and sometimes challenging aspects of raising children of a different race, mostly African-American children in today's racially charged world.
