We are excited to introduce the people who work tirelessly to support our children and the Collins Children's Home every day.
In 2005, I chose a career pivot that would alter the course of my life. God further developed my passion for Jesus and others when I became the Small Groups and Guest Experience Director at Foothills Church in Seneca, SC. This role grew my faith and revealed a true gift for visionary and strategic planning. These skills were tested at the highest levels during two successful stents as the CEO of Foothills Care Center and Piedmont Women’s Center (2012-2018 at Foothills Care Center (FCC), and 2018-2023 at Piedmont Women’s Center).
Karly graduated from Anderson University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. She previously served as a case worker with the Department of Social Services for six years.
She has always lived in the SC Upstate, having grown up in Townville, and now lives in Westminster. She’s a great blessing to Collins Home and we look forward to having her with us for years to come.
