Jay Panit, Domestic Adoption Specialist

I am a graduate of  San Francisco State University with a Bachelors of Art in Social Work . My story at Adopt International first started as an intern supporting the agency's initiative to digitize paper documents (no small task) . Now I am a full time staff as Adopt International's Domestic Adoption Specialist where I support families in the Readoption process. In the near future, I hope to pursue a masters degree in Social Work and eventually obtain a clinical license.


I always knew adoption would be my path to parenthood, which motivated me to learn more about the journey. After my internship with Adopt, I found myself falling in love with the idea of a career in adoption. It has been so rewarding to witness and support families come together and find forever homes.

In my free time, I enjoy going to the beach, spending time with my family, and practicing coding.  I speak three languages – English, Tagalog, and French.
