Born and raised in a small town in Northern Wisconsin, raising my own family in Madison, WI. I worked at a senior living facility for four years in the life enrichment department (activities!) where I was fortunate enough to attend a conference with Teepa to become an engagement leader. I was not only able to use the practical activities with residents that I was working with, but got to teach fellow employees about the GEMs and putting purpose into resident's days. I also got to lead a 30 minute brief introduction to working with people with dementia in orientation for new employees, most of which did not have any previous experience with dementia. Upon deciding to stay home with my two boys (and one more baby on the way!) I have not stopped my thirst for knowledge about working with people with dementia, creating activities for senior living facilities, and putting purpose into their days. I'd love to chat about ideas for group or small programming anytime! I love new ideas and team work!
