ABOUT ME | I am a Brainerd Lakes area native, who returned to the area after college to work and raise my family. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 30 years and we have two adult children and four beautiful grandchildren. I appreciate being surrounded by nature. I love spending time with family and friends camping, hiking, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, boating, snow shoeing and traveling! I practice yoga, meditation, and love to read.

First, as a service coordinator and consultant, then as a hospice social worker; and most recently as a whole person wellness care manager. My passion has been working with persons with dementia and their care partners. In 2017, I organized the first Memory Café in our area. I am excited to expand into providing mature adult and geriatric counseling. I also specialize in coaching care partners of seniors.
