Jasmina Schue

Director of Operations

One word to describe the organization? Family

What is the most gratifying part of your job? Knowing that the children in our homes are safe, loved and their needs will be met makes coming to work feel less like work, even on the most stressful of days.

What is your favorite season? Why? Fall for sure. There is something wonderful about seeing the leaves change colors, the crisp autumn air, bonfires and knowing that the holiday season is right around the corner. Oh, and boots, scarves and big sweaters!
