Katherine (Kat) McManus, MSW

Pregnancy and Adoption Support Social Worker

 

Since joining this team in 2016, I have loved working in my role of Pregnancy & Adoption Support Social Worker (replace).  I love being a social worker for Pregnancy & Adoption Support and I have been in this role since 2016. (remove) My experience since graduating with my Master’s in Social Work has been rooted in child welfare. I always knew I wanted to work with children but I never knew how much I would enjoy working with families and expectant parents as well. The amount of love and strength I am able to see with my clients is absolutely amazing. Everyone’s story is unique and I feel honored to be a small part of their journey.  

During an average week, you may find me in our Fairfax the office working on home studies, visiting with our adoptive families in their homes, or in the community with expectant parents. I also host our monthly birthmother support group and I oversee all of our Waiting Child Foster Care Adoptions. I am fortunate to work with a great team of co-workers who are incredibly supportive and share similar goals and values. If you were to ask my colleagues to describe me, they would likely say friendly, organized, and always smiling!  (so true ) 

Loves: Hiking, listening to audiobooks, Zumba, traveling, peppermint tea, and sour candy
Dislikes: Washing dishes, sweet potatoes, alarm clocks, Styrofoam 

Please reach out by phone or e-mail - I’d love to learn more about you and support you on your next steps!
