I have worked with seniors for 30+ years. Alzheimer's is my world. Naomi Feil is my hero. As Stephen S. Bowman says, "Alzheimer's is a crisis, not just for the individual, but for the entire family." I learned this first hand as a caregiver to my grandmother. She taught me empathy, patience, and understanding for Alzheimer's and dementia. In my 10+ years working in the senior living industry, I have had conversations with over 5000 dementia families dealing with the difficulties and stress that this disease can bring. I've trained hundreds of people along the way and taught others how to quickly help families in crisis. I now represent families seeking Alzheimer's and dementia care options as a former National Director of an industry leading company. My passion thrives when I am given an opportunity to help a family navigate a difficult path that often involves complex problem solving. Outside of work, I find peace with international missionary work and children's ministry through GlobalX Missions and North Point Community Church. I am regarded as a well-read, news hound with and insatiable desire to learn.
