Those who know me well say that I’m:
- Positive – I’m relentlessly optimistic. I truly believe every problem has a solution and will work tirelessly with you to help find it.

I chose to become a life care coordinator because I have admired Kris Maser’s work over the years and wanted to be a part of her firm’s vision to help people live their best life by planning for their future. We provide a unique and needed service to our clients, offering a holistic approach in helping them coordinate and manage their legal, financial and personal care issues.
I believe that we are all as happy as we decide to be. Attitude is a choice.
I can walk up to almost anyone and start a conversation. I enjoy meeting new people and connecting with them.
My greatest accomplishment is my skill and ability to relate to various people from different backgrounds. I believe you can find you have more in common with people than not. I am able to connect with individuals from all walks of life and find things we have in common.
I’m making a difference by using my skills and knowledge to function as a conduit between clients, health care professionals and community resources.

My next challenge is to travel down the Amazon river.
