Amalea has worked with different aspects of the foster and adoption field for over ten years. The focus of her work has been building healthy families and she has enjoyed watching children blessed through their placements and subsequent adoptions with Antioch families. She is thrilled to now be a part of the Antioch team! Amalea loves watching children blossom and develop as they move into a stable and loving home and believes it is a privilege to be a part of that process. She is a Washington native and received her Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of Washington. As you might expect, she is a big Husky football fan.
Amalea finds joy in raising her two teenage children with her husband, and loving their adult foster daughter and her family. Her hobbies include gardening, caring for her chickens, and studying God’s word. She also enjoys encouraging women on their journey to know the Lord more personally.
