Rikki Cruz, MSW, LCSW-A

Social Worker - North Carolina

Rikki joined the Lifeline team in October of 2017 as a social worker in our North Carolina office! She completes home studies for international/domestic adoptions, completes post-adoption visits, and serves on the domestic and pregnancy counseling team. She is originally from Monroe, NC but now lives in Greensboro with her husband, Sam, 10-month-old son, Hudson, and two dogs. In her free time, Rikki enjoys spending time with her friends/families, being outdoors, and serving with a high school ministry called YoungLife. Her favorite food is hibachi and her favorite place to travel is the North Carolina mountains. She’s a 2 on the Enneagram and one thing most people don’t know about her is that she can skateboard. Her three simple joys are being outside with friends, coffee, and day trip to somewhere fun. Her favorite thing about working at Lifeline is that that she gets to do ministry daily in her job. She loves that all her work is done in a spiritual context – that everything is done in light of Jesus, what He has done for us, and what we are challenged to do because of  His love. She thinks it’s such a rare thing to find in a work environment.
