“Helping families care for their loved one is my passion. I’ve been in your shoes. When my family and I were caring for my father, we had to make difficult decisions at a very stressful and emotional period in our lives. Having someone help us when we did not know where to turn or what to do was a relief to my family – a much needed breath of fresh air. My personal and professional experiences in health care afford me the opportunity to provide you with the support that you and your family deserve.”
