“I train and advise families, direct care workers, and facilities so they can provide the best possible care to our aging population and the community.

I am passionate about improving care for dependent adults, especially those coping with dementia or a loved one who has dementia.  I have pursued this passion through work in home care while obtaining multiple training certifications.”
