I have a Master’s in Gerontology from UNC Greensboro and a Bachelor’s in Psychology from the University of Mary Washington. I’ve been working, interning, and volunteering in long-term care environments since 2005. Dementia care is my passion, and I’m always looking for new ways to connect with caregivers. My book on dementia care is the only book on the market about moving someone to a care community. It came out in November 2016 with Johns Hopkins University Press.

I’m available for consulting work, tips, advice, or just a chat on the phone. I live in Pittsburgh, PA, but I travel all over the country for speaking engagements and workshops!
