What has lead you to your work today?

My paternal grandmother was the one person in my family I thought “knew” me as a person. She was there for me. She died at 100 years of age while I was in the Army in Korea and could not return for her funeral. I can be there for others in my work as a psychiatric social worker and as an End of Life Doula. I can be there for others.

What inspires you to help people with Parkinson's Disease?

I once worked with a wonderful psychiatrist. I admired his work and his commitment to people. Years later I saw him at a conference. He needed assistance in walking, could not speak and his body was riddled with tremors. Medication then was not what it is today, and his Parkinson’s was winning. If I can help someone with Parkinson’s today, I consider it a way of helping him.

Wellness Village professionals have wonderful things to offer people.  All boats rise when we work together.

Favorite Quote

One of my favorite quotes is from Anais Nin. It speaks to all aspects of life. “And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk to blossom.
