Stephanie Griffith

Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Recruiter

As a Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Recruiter, Stephanie Griffith helps children in foster care search for loving and permanent homes by building relationships with the child, as well as their network, and utilizing child-focused recruitment. She attended Grand Valley State University and graduated in 2018 with a B.A. in Social Work.

Why I started with Arms Wide Adoption Services:

I have always had a passion for working with children and families. Once I saw the position for Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, I knew it was something I wanted to get involved with. The focus of the program brings a different perspective to recruitment and I am so excited to be a part of it!

My favorite part about my job:

I am truly looking forward to building relationships with the children and getting to know who they are and what they are looking for in a family.

My least favorite part:

Coordinating drive times and visits because I am new to Houston and am still getting used to how complex the highways are.

More about me:

I was born and raised in Michigan and will always miss the Great Lakes, fall weather, and living in a snow globe around Christmas time (ONLY Christmas time). So far I am enjoying Houston and all it has to offer (restaurants, events, etc.). Even though I live far from family and friends, moving has given me a chance to travel!!

Ask me about:

Movies and TV shows!! I am currently into This is Us, The Bachelor, Good Doctor, DWTS and The Originals. The list goes on.
