National Speaker for our Aging America

Being a speaker is a passion of mine. My career has always allowed me to have a microphone in one hand to tell a story, while the other hand is waving around being the explanation point to my statements. I truly believe that we the people are not well informed about our choices in life, and my small corner in the world allows me to talk about choices. With over 30 years experience in healthcare and housing, I have a unique view when it comes to educating businesses, industries and families about how to create a living environment that ages with you.

I’ve worked with various organizations over the years speaking and educating about the aging of America, aging (thriving) in place, community support and home design with products for a better living. 

I realized how important choices are in life. A choice can only be made if we are presented with two or more options. The reality is that we usually do what someone else has done or what we’re told to do. It’s not necessarily bad, it’s just the way we function as people. But think about how much better our decisions would be if they were truly informed decisions.

As we age, for instance, we start to make decisions about:

  • Where am I going to live?
  • How can I remain in this house?
  • Who can help me?

I became a speaker and consultant to help people see these important decisions as educated choices, rather than a gamble. With my years of experience, I navigate the waters to help you better understand aging, aging in place and how to engage in the multi trillion dollar market. By understanding the value of the need, you will have the ability to create a solution.
