My mission keeps me focused and determined. My vision provides constant fuel. And my values set the PATH forward.
Since being thrown into caregiving in 2011, I have set out to disrupt the caregiving industry.
A parent’s terminal illness has a way of bringing pause. A way of prompting us to reconsider our priorities.
Only months into the journey as Primary Caregiver for my mother, I was exhausted.
I realized that in order to manage my mother’s needs, I needed to be well.
I needed to set and enforce boundaries.
I needed to take care of myself.
And importantly, I needed to become proactive instead of reactive.
I became a Communications Specialist when navigating the healthcare system.
I became an Advocate as I considered tough situations and made decisions.
And I became a Program Coordinator as I facilitated a myriad of departments, services, and people.
