As a Certified Caregiving Consultant, you can reach out to me for help and support and coaching as you care for a family member or friend.
A Little about Me
I am a 30-something aspiring local celebrity do-gooder in Kansas City, MO. I have been the primary caregiver for my grandmother for over three years. I am also a former caregiver to my friend Calvin, an adult with developmental disabilities.
I have been using the knowledge and experiences gained over the past twelve years building a career helping disabilities at the individual, organizational, and systems levels to help her grandma have a good life and age in place.
Areas of Expertise
My formal training combined with her variety of personal caregiving experiences positions her to help family caregivers better take bites out of their caregiving sandwiches. I have in-depth expertise in:
- Using technology to support loved ones
- Using Medicaid HCBS waivers to enhance supports
- Navigating community, aging, and disability services
- Helping families plan for the future and map current and needed supports
- Supports for adults who are deaf blind
Bonus for Signing Up
Each client has the option of creating a daily organizing sheet, customized to your caree’s needs. This sheet can help carees keep track of their day and help caregivers facilitate conversations about health and wellness, social and leisure activities, and day-to-day affairs.

I offer all potential family caregivers a free consultation during which we’ll explore if we will be a good fit for each other. I am connected to a nationwide network of CCCs, so if we’re not a good match, chances are we can find the right one. Book your consultation.
