As a licensed master social worker, previous youth in foster care and current foster parent, Amber Jewell has a unique perspective on the foster care system and how it affects youth. In this inaugural episode of A Fostered Life, Amber sheds light on how being part of the system can affect youth in care, and she gives some helpful input on what teens in care need in order to thrive as they move into adulthood.

Despite the hardships that come in life, Amber believes in the power of any individual, at any age to make positive changes, impact others and improve their phase of life. She has confidence in the ability of professionals to plant many seeds in the lives of those they serve, and she offers her input in this podcast to help foster parents grow and gain insight and skills in order to better serve the children in our care.
