Consulting

 

Amanda - talk at HKUAs a professional consultant, I have had numerous opportunities to provide workshops, trainings, and other forms of consultation to various professional organizations, adoption agencies, educational institutions (K-12 and universities and colleges), parent groups, adoptee groups, conference planners, and filmmakers. My training and expertise in adoption-related concerns with a special emphasis on transracial and international adoption have been important assets for my work with the various groups who work with me.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of a consultation for your organization or group, please feel free to contact me.
