Prudence was born and raised in West Virginia, but has lived in various cities throughout the
southern and northeastern US, as well as Australia during a couple of her childhood years! She
visited the Pacific Northwest while in college and knew that, one day, she would be back to
stay. Prudence shares her Portland home with a Cocker Spaniel named Minne, two cats, her
husband, and all of his guitars. She loves to cook, clean, organize and generally be a
homebody, although she likes to go out for hikes, coffee dates with friends, or mini golf.
Prudence got her degree in social work in 2001, and has held positions with a variety of
interesting and worthwhile organizations, including domestic violence shelters, afterschool
programs, and teen mentoring programs. After working with youth and their families for over
twelve years, Prudence is so excited to be part of the adoption process!
