A little about my experience

During the years I served as Survivorship Coordinator at St. Charles Cancer Center, I was caregiver to my live-in mom as she sunk further into dementia and for my husband, Gary, with late-stage cancer.

I have been widowed since November 2014, and my days are currently filled with blogging, contributing writing for national web-based organizations, coaching, national speaking, and writing a second book.

What I’m not:  Counselor

What I am:  Coach
