“Specializing in policy and public health, I am the Director of Business Development at Transitions LifeCare. My healthcare journey started as an undergraduate at Virginia Commonwealth University, where I spent time in nursing school before graduating with a business degree. I have since graduated from Johns Hopkins University with my master’s degree in healthcare management.
My experience after supporting my grandparents through their aging journey is what brought me to Transitions LifeCare, first as a volunteer and now in my current role. After time spent working in healthcare policy, my current role has given me the opportunity to focus more on our community and ensure that every individual has the resources they need as they face their most challenging moments in life.
I spend much of my free time hiking with my two rescue pups, Vespa and Knots. As a Raleigh native, I am also always looking for new restaurants that are popping up around our growing community!”
Four, one-hour webinars on “the business of caregiving” set for April 8, 15, 22, 29 from 2:00-3:00 p.m.
Transitions LifeCare cares about caregivers, and we want to be sure their needs are met by hosting a series of webinars in April with the theme of “the business of caregiving.” Hear from experts on legal planning, how to pay for long-term care, Medicaid/Medicaid Managed Care, and Medicare/Medicare Advantage plans.
By providing these webinars via Zoom, remote family members and caregivers who may not easily be able to leave their loved ones alone are encouraged to attend. Providing this platform – at no cost to the caregivers — is possible because of the generosity of sponsors who continue to support caregivers.
