Welcome to HR Virtual Cafe. I am so excited to have you stop by.
A little about me?
I am a transplant from Southeast Alabama who moved to Chicago in 2009 and still trying to adjust to the crazy weather. Upon my move I was lucky enough to hook up with some great gals who owned AgingInfoUSA. I was fortunate to become a partner and therefore changing my title to Vice President / Partner in mid 2010.
I am a wife, mother of a 20year old daughter, mama of two dogs, and author of two books.
My first experience in the industry of eldercare was at an extended care facility where I was Assistant Activities Directors where I quickly became aware that it was the family caregivers who were in need of education on trusted resources available to assist their elderly loved ones. I spent 3 years researching advanced technology for Alzheimer’s Patients and their Caregivers and for four years headed up the Portable PERS Device Division of a security company before moving to Illinois.
Now I seem to have found what really motivates me and that is helping educate corporations and their employees on the importance of proactively preparing to care for their loved ones before a crisis. We are on the forefront wave of the silver tsunami that is rapidly approaching and it’s not a matter of “if I will one day take care of Mom or Dad” it’s simply a matter of “when.”
Aging Info USA directly supports employee caregivers, HR and Executive Management by implementing creative approaches in education, resources and training in regard to eldercare and family caregiving work/life challenges.
