Leah Varvel

Social Worker

Leah joined Madison Adoption Associates in Summer of 2017 with a goal to help clients, including children, adults, and families find their forever families so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole, and safe.  Her educational background includes a Masters degree in Educational Psychology (M.Ed) and a B.A. in Psychology from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Illinois.  The decade thereafter, Leah has had professional experiences in clinical, and early childhood settings, along with experience as a school counselor. It was in Carbondale, Illinois that Leah not only graduated but also began her career, and married her high school sweetheart, Josh. Josh and Leah grew their family by two. One boy, Jonah and one girl, Ellie. They moved to central Illinois in 2014 to be closer to extended family and Josh and Leah’s hometown of Springfield, Illinois. Leah is excited to help the Madison Adoption Associates family grow!
