Why did you become involved with Boys Town South Florida?

  • I am a former employee with a 15-year tenure. I got my start in human services at Boys Town and I am grateful for the opportunity and experience I gained. I have great respect for the organization, its mission and the research-based work they do to help change the way America cares for children and families.

What do you wish other people knew about Boys Town?

  • Their programs are evidence-and research-based , highly structured and work! They truly make a difference.

What is your favorite program/service that Boys Town South Florida provides?

  • In-Home Family Services because that is where I worked for 15 years. I helped launch the program in South Florida and was the first “Family Consultant” hired in 1991, when Boys Town expanded to South Florida. I know this program/service has helped hundreds, if not thousands, of South Florida families.

What will others be surprised to know about you?

  • I was adopted as a baby and I am a staunch advocate for the blessing of adoption.
