Blake grew up in metro Atlanta and from a young age, her Christian faith was a huge part of her life. Her relationship with Jesus continues to be the thing that defines all of who she is. When Blake was in college she developed a passion for domestic mission work and psychology.
In college Blake and some of her classmates developed a tutoring program for low income families in the community. This program really developed a passion in Blake for working with children in high risk situations here in the U.S, and this led her to work for her state child welfare office after graduation. Blake worked as a caseworker writing, approving and managing foster home studies for almost 5 years, before moving into her current position, in which she assesses and approves home studies submitted by private foster care agencies in Georgia.
Over the years Blake has grown very passionate about evidenced based practices for improving foster home outcomes for children in foster care, and in 2020 she was able to become a practitioner in Trust Based relational intervention. Equipping foster parents and fellow caseworkers to create better outcomes for children in foster care is her passion, all the while acknowledging the gospel as the ultimate solution for the hurting and broken I encounter.
