Tina attended college at Cerritos College in California majoring in the legal field and court reporting before working as a medical office manager, transcriptionist and unit clerk. She was eventually trained as a labor and delivery surgical tech and birth clerk. Working with babies proved to be her passion. Having sustained several miscarriages and a near-term fetal demise, Tina felt drawn to counsel women who had sustained pregnancy losses or stillbirths and was certified as a neonatal bereavement counselor. All of this background has proved be invaluable in working with birth mothers and infertile women, who inevitably feel a sense of bereavement at the loss of a child or their fertility. Tina has facilitated adoptions for the past twelve years. You could say adoption is her "labor of love."
Tina is the mother of three children, ages 22, 19 and 13. She is a Director of her local Chamber of Commerce and is active in her church, as well as volunteering for community service projects. She enjoys travel and promotes adoption with seminars to educate families who wish to adopt.
