I have worked in the field of aging since 1989. Educating elders and their families about services, resources and options to meet their needs while optimizing quality of life, is the work I do everyday . I am grateful every day to be part of this profession as an Aging Life Care expert.
While in undergraduate school, I did an internship in the hospital system and while in graduate school my internship was at the VA Medical Center. Twenty Five years of my career was spent with a post acute continuum providing medical social work in the home health setting, Palliative Care and Director of Private Care Management services. My experience is both broad and deep.
