My loving and talented mother, Sheila, lost her home to Hurricane Katrina. Then, she lost her health, ability to create beautiful art, and, ultimately, her life due to Alzheimer’s. For almost 10 years, I was her primary Caregiver and advocate, not just her son. I turned my loss into my passion for supporting other caregivers.

After “retiring” from state employment after 25 years and entering my “encore career”, I am a Caregiver support group and memory cafe leader, podcast guest, and speaker, a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)®, an elder mediator, and a caregiving support consultant. I have completed several caregiving courses through the Alzheimer’s Association and the Society for Certified Senior Advisors (CSA)® and earned business degrees from Boston and Portland State Universities.
I am a native New Englander and have lived in the Portland, Oregon area for over 39 years with my wife and supporter of over 40 years, Lori.
