Meet the 2018 Finalists: Amara

Posted by SVP Fast Pitch

We are less than three weeks away from the Final Showdown and the excitement is mounting! Kicking off our “Meet the Finalists” series is Angela Tucker, Director of Post-Adoption Services at Amara. Check back daily as we countdown to our big day and introduce all 11 finalists.

Our Mission: Recognizing adoption as a lifelong experience, Amara’s Post-Adoption program works to ensure that adoptees and those who love them receive support in order to promote stability and fulfilling family relationships.

What inspires you most about the work you do? I am inspired to be in the presence of so many people who persevere beyond societal expectations. I also love working with adopted youth and having the privilege of watching them grow into their own identity.

What are you most excited about on November 10th? I’m really curious to meet the audience members. I’m eager to feel the energy of the room where so much social entrepreneurship is happening.

Tell us a little known fact about you: I enjoy playing the piano upside down…yes, my head is down by the pedals and my hands are up on the keys. I totally zone out while I play this way.

What are some of your favorite things to do in Seattle or the PNW? I love sitting by the fireplace with a hot chocolate, a book or a good friend who wants to talk about the meaning of life or dissect human behavior.
