Speaking up

for you and your parent to

be seen, not forgotten

and cared for, not neglected.

I understand the joys and challenges that come from a season of caring. I helped care for both of her parents during their separate battles with Alzheimer’s over a thirty-year span.  I am able to look back on those days now with no regrets – and wish the same for everyone caring for aging parents.

To help others through this challenging season of life, I wrote No Regrets: Hope for Your Caregiving Season, a book filled with my heart-warming stories and practical suggestions for journeying through a caregiving season.

I am an ICF Associate Certified Coach with certifications in both Life and Leadership Coaching from the Professional Christian Coaching Institute.


I would love to speak at your next event.  Contact me to discuss what presentations best fit your needs. 

Let’s Talk!

Compassion fatigue is real, whether you are in a serving profession, a parent, a family caregiver, or just wired to nurture and care for others.

What you do is important and when you reach the point of an empty tank you will find challenges everywhere you look, exhaustion and frustration.

As an expert coach for professional women in a season of caring for aging parents, I share 3 things that can help you keep compassion fatigue at bay or
refresh you to continue caring today. With heart-warming stories with practical takeaways, your audience will find this presentation one to remember.
