I can assist you and your loved one. You don’t have to do this alone.
As a Certified Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care Trainer, I have gained invaluable experience working with the geriatric population and their loved ones for nearly ten years. Charged with a passion to educate, empower, and encourage others, I take great pride in advocating for caregivers, the disabled community, the LGBTQ+, and those aging in place.
As a caregiver myself, I have walked in the same shoes and know what families are experiencing. I create CAP and CDP (Comprehensive Action Plan, Comprehensive Discharge Plan) to assess and implement the most fiscally and appropriate health care transition plan. All while advocating and navigating caregivers through the geriatric process. I resonate with caregivers facing uncertain circumstances in healthcare transition. I have the ability, experience and acknowledge to advocate and empower caregivers.

My passion to advocate for CareGivers and Aging Adults stems from my childhood. I’m the oldest of two children, my brother being two years younger than me. During his birth, he lost oxygen and suffers from Epilepsy ever since. My parents are loving, overprotective, and riddled with fear. Perhaps this is why I have such an innate instinct to protect caregivers.
As a child going out to play with friends was terrifying for my mother as she always worried about her son, my brother. Despite her anxiety, my brother and I had a very happy childhood, yet I grew up a bit faster than the rest of my peers. I was always aware of my brother’s whereabouts, and his proximity to me even as we played with our friends. I never knew when he would have a seizure, but I did know that it was my job to be there for my little brother and keep him safe.
I entered the geriatric senior living industry a decade ago, and I quickly realized how many adult children become caregivers to their parents by default. The one common denominator was that, as caregivers, we are not as well versed as we should be in the myriad of options and decisions available to us. I, myself, am the caregiver for three people: my mother, father, and brother. This was my a-ha moment; I realized I had the knowledge and experience to share with fellow caregivers. This is when I chose to be an advocate for caregivers, aging adults, and LGBTQ+ Elders. I was compelled to share my journey and guide others on their own path. In doing so, it is my passion and commitment to educate and empower families to be the best advocate possible for their loved ones.
