Gail joins us with a long history of advocating for children and childhood, both as a member of the administrative team of Southside Family Nurturing Center, a family-centered program for the prevention of child abuse and neglect, and with over 12 years of experience as a volunteer Guardian ad Litem with Ramsey County.
Gail says that she is inspired by Ampersand Families’ commitment to “honor the urgency of childhood” when finding permanent families for waiting teens; she is eager to use her experiences and skills to serve this vision.
Gail earned both her B.A. in English Literature and her M.A. in Teaching English at Bethel University. She continues at Bethel as an adjunct faculty member and writing consultant, teaching writing and literature to adult and graduate students from around the world.
