We are thrilled to welcome some new people to our team! Jessica Figlio and Shanyce Henley join us as our two newest Case Management staff members, and we hope you will join us in welcoming them to On Your Feet!
Jess is a grateful birthmother to her son, Ryan, who was placed in an open adoption in 2001. She feels very blessed by her relationship with her son and his parents as they remain close and have celebrated a loving open relationship. Yet, with this joy comes intense grief which Jess has navigated in her healing journey. She found On Your Feet Foundation 10 years after she placed which provided invaluable support that she didn't know she needed and opened the door to much deeper healing. She is passionate about her journey and sharing what she has learned to help support other birthmothers. Jess graduated from Purdue after placing her son and worked in Talent and Business Management in broadcast commercial production for 12 years. Jess currently works from home while parenting her 4 children, whom she adores, and cherishes this season with them.
Shanyce is birthmother to fraternal twins, a boy and a girl, who she placed in an interracial, open adoption ten years ago. Shanyce and the twins' adoptive parents have worked together to be as child focused as possible by making sure they can contact Shanyce whenever they would like to. Shanyce holds a degree in Computer Science and has worked in Human Resources for the past 5 years. In her free time, she is an avid gamer (video, board, card, etc) and also enjoys reading, listening to music, ignoring the news when it gets to be too much, and sitting down to watch a good movie.
