We are thrilled to have Stacy Syring join us on the Board of Directors for OAI!

James Smith, Board Member
James Smith, a former Manager of Customer Services is a husband, father, foster parent and an adoptive parent. He has seen firsthand the damage that has come from young adults leaving the foster care system too early, when they are completely unequipped with basic life skills. He comes to OAI with a basic goal; to help children transition to independent, self-supporting, confident adults.
Jessica Parkison was born and raised in The Carolina's, she relocated to Spring, TX with her husband, Chad, and their three sons in 2021. While in South Carolina they fostered 5 children in their home. Her and Chad had constant discussions about all that was available to youth aging out of foster care, but no one showing them how to take advantage of the resources available. Jessica is passionate about social work and community involvement.
When Jessica isn't working you will find her carpooling her boys to basketball, baseball, and swim meets or walking the neighborhood with a Brene Brown podcast in her ear.
