I am passionate about:
giving training, hope and laughter to family members of persons living with dementia. And my daughter, Grace.
A little known fact about me is:
I hate beets, love fried okra, love people who laugh easily, detest the sound of clicking pens, need coffee in the morning, trying to be more patient as a passenger in a car and love seeing babies smile.
Chief Purpose Officer
In the Moment
I have been training in non-clinical dementia care for 20 years, ever since my Dad's diagnoses of Alzheimers'. I have used improv as a training tool since I started facilitating workshops. I was the co-developer of the CMS Hand in Hand Training Toolkit which used videos and interactive training methods in the 4 modules of Dementia Care and 2 modules of the prevention of abuse. I have been privileged to have been featured on This American Life, Real Simple magazine and website and presented at TED MED. We created the non profit In the Moment to pursue this project. beinginthemoment.org
