I’m a small-town girl at heart, bringing my rural Illinois upbringing with me to my Chicago suburban home. I think we all want to feel connected to one another, and I think most of us don’t know how to do it without elaborate parties, recipes, and expectations.
Join me as I give you easy ways to connect with:
- Your kids
- Your neighbors
- The senior citizen that lives down the road
- Your co-workers
- Your aging parent
- Your friend who is struggling
- The barista at your coffee shop
For more than 15 years, I have dedicated my life’s work to connecting with special populations including seniors, kids, and adults living with developmental disabilities. I’ve worked in hands-on and leadership roles to plan events and activities that empower and leave everyone feeling important and cared for.
Nowadays, I write fulltime, in between parenting my 9-year-old son and volunteering throughout my community. You can catch me at:
….and more, including national senior care franchises
Let’s learn together and connect in small ways to make this life feel less lonely.
