Being with people, giving them my undivided attention and in return allowing me to be a part of their lives, no matter how brief, is truly a gift to me.
I have worked with aging adults for over 15 years and cannot think of another profession which could be any more rewarding. I am an Alzheimer’s Association of America-trained support group facilitator and am honored by the many families with whom I’ve worked with going through the progression of dementia.
After growing up in Sun Prairie, WI, my journeys took me throughout Europe and India to share my work as a photo artist with people of diverse cultures. In fact, as the featured artist in the 2013 Edina Art Fair, my work has been seen in numerous art publications globally.
I now reside in Minneapolis with my spouse Ralph and two beautiful children. There’s no better sound to me than their laugher.
