I am a wife. A mom, A daughter. AND a forever grandchild who is passionate about equipping and encouraging caregivers. In March 2020, Northfield Publishers released my first book called The Value of Wrinkles: A Young Perspective on How Loving the Old Will Change Your Life.
What makes my story unique is that I’ve spent a lot of time living, serving, and gleaning from the older generation. I grew up in an intergenerational household and throughout the years have been involved in the caregiving process. Throughout my journey, I’ve learned that grandchildren can play a POWERFUL role as caregivers.
In the span of eight years, I not only experienced the birth of three beautiful children, I also had to grieve the death of three close family members (my grandparents and my humble dad). Outwardly, it may be appeared that I was a blessing to my family. Truthfully, the chance to love my older loved ones blessed me in return.
Professionally, I’ve spent my entire career serving in the senior care setting and have been blessed to learn from mentors/colleagues at reputable healthcare organizations in the senior living and hospice care field. I also have a Master in Public Health from the University of Maryland, College-Park
My husband, Kevin, is the best partner I have in life. We have three bright and active kids that keep life busy!
