About the Founder:

About the founder:  As a financial professional and prior health care provider, I am dedicated to helping individuals and businesses plan for the impact of long term care needs.  To serve my clients at the highest level, I regularly attend industry training and certification programs.  This includes study for the CLTC, a professional designation which stands for “Certification in Long Term Care”, granted by the Corporation for Long Term Care Certification and RICP, retirement income certified professional.  

My academic background is rooted in an Occupational Therapy Degree from Tufts University enhanced with a graduate degree in Health Care Administration from Framingham State University.  My prior experience includes 16 years working in rehabilitation in Spinal Cord Injury, Hand Therapy, Cardiac Rehabilitation, and Geriatrics at the V.A. Medical Center, nursing homes, and home care settings.  After 16 years of working in health care, Medicare reimbursement changed making it more challenging to provide quality ethical care in the nursing home.  It was at that time I learned about long term care insurance. I made a natural transition from helping people in crisis to helping people prevent crisis.  Over the last 20 years, I has worked with individuals, couples, and groups as large as the Town of Framingham MA.  I am passionate in helping people make informed decisions regarding long term care planning.  As a specialist, I also partner with Financial Advisors and Wealth Managers, CPAs, and Estate Attorneys’ to optimize an interdisciplinary approach to financial planning.
