How long have you been involved in social work?

10 years

What is your role in the Adoption Team?

Screening of prospective adoption parents. Taking adoptive parents through the whole process. Step-family adoptions.

What made you decide to do social work?

I have always had a passion to work with people. Counselling and helping people comes naturally to me.

What is the most challenging aspect of your work?

The learning phase

And the most rewarding aspect?

The most rewarding aspect for me is to walk a road with people and to see how people discover themselves, their potential and rise up out of the ashes.

Who is your role model and why?

My parents are my role models. They have been married for so many years and have set such a high standard in terms of morals and beliefs. They have gone through many trials together in life but have show so much resilience.
