Kelsey Melvin, MSW
In middle school, I stood in a crowded court room while the judge finalized the adoption of my cousins. In that moment, I knew that I wanted to commit the rest of my life to the journey of adoption. I volunteered at various adoption agencies in high school then began as an intern for an international adoption agency in 2009. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Social Work from Pacific Lutheran University in 2010, then obtained my Master of Arts in Social Work from Walla Walla University in 2011. Since that time, I’ve been blessed to facilitate and supervise hundreds of international adoptions. I also complete pre and post adoption reports for domestic and international adoptions. Being a mama of two is my greatest joy, and I’m grateful that my role in adoption allows others to experience the love of a family.
