Tierra was born and raised in Riverdale, GA. She received a Bachelors in Social Work from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) before attending the University of Southern California for her Masters in Social Work. She has experience working with children, adults, and families in various settings including mental health day treatment centers, child welfare, homeless shelters and a private school specialized for children with developmental disabilities.

Tierra believes that she has been called to work with children and families and she is excited to be apart of the Christian City Family! She wants to use her experience to not only be a support for our future generation but also help them find security within their placements and within themselves. Tierra passion for her work can be shown in a poem by Edgar Albert Guest entitled It Couldn’t be Done. This poem highlights that we can even exceed our own expectations once we put our heart and mind into it.

“We generate fears while we sit. We overcome them by action. Fear is nature’s way of warning us to get busy.” – Dr. Henry Link
