International Adoption Specialist
Katie joined the MAA team in April 2018. She has always had a great love for children and a strong interest in working in the adoption field. After a first career in business, she went back to school to become a Genetic Counselor. Most recently, she worked with families and children at a non-profit disease advocacy organization helping to support and connect them with researchers developing treatments for their neuromuscular condition. She also co-led an Ambassador team of volunteer patient advocates, and especially enjoyed hearing their stories and understanding life with their disease. She learned a great deal about strength, positivity and resilience.
Katie believes that all children, regardless of their needs, deserve strong and loving families so that they can grow and develop into happy, healthy adults. She is excited to be part of the MAA adoption team and looks forward to bringing empathy and passion to the children she will be working with.
Katie graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a minor in Business Administration. She recently earned her Master of Science Degree in Genetic Counseling from Arcadia University. Katie & Bob have been happily married for many years and have a lot of fun with their three great kids, Sarah and twin boys, Sam and Adam.
