Linda Henning Gansler, MSW, LCSW, ACSW
Founder and Director
Hi, I am Linda Henning Gansler and I have been in the adoption field since the day I graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. I was hired for my first adoption job as a case-worker and was told to report to court for a finalization of an adoption for a family. This court hearing was at the same time as my graduation. Needless to say I went to the finalization, and I was hooked. I have worked in the field of adoption for the past 25 years. Training in every area of adoption, and knew it was time for me to open my own agency. Living in Colorado at the time, I opened Adopt Triad Consultants, INC. and held the position of CEO until I moved to Alaska with my husband and family. As well as an agency CEO, I am a mother of 4 children, two adopted from Liberia, West Africa, and two biological children. Living in the interior of Alaska, gave me time to decide to open Bright Star Adoptions, LLC with Paul D. Petersen. We had worked together for years at Adopt Triad Consultants, LLC. With my adult life committed to adoption, I am thrilled to be apart of this wonderful, fresh agency.
