Regina completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology at Boston University and earned her Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan. During her career of more than 25 years, Regina has worked in the mental health and adoption communities. After Regina and her husband adopted their daughter from Honduras and their son from Paraguay, Regina was delighted to merge her professional career as a social worker with her personal experience with adoption. Regina has enjoyed helping families adopt children both domestically and internationally, and has always been dedicated to providing adoptive families with post adoption support throughout her long career. She has established and participated in several adoptive parents support groups. In addition to her work as an adoption social worker, Regina also managed a three year federally funded post adoption support program at the National Adoption Center. She has presented workshops on a variety of adoption topics at local, regional, statewide, and national adoption conferences and professional social work conferences, and conducted programs for adoptive families support groups in the Delaware Valley. Regina has also chaired several adoption conferences in the Philadelphia region, and developed and facilitated workshops for children and teens. In addition to her service to the adoption community, Regina also participates in the Delaware Valley Special Needs Consortium and is the Chair of the Inclusion Committee of her house of worship. In her time outside of work, Regina is an avid bike rider, foodie, traveler, reader, scrapbooker, and Broadway fan.
