About Me


 I've been in ministry for 27 years, first as a pastor then as a healthcare chaplain. My doctoral research was on the experience of marriage for spouses of dementia patients, and out of that research came Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer's.  I currently train churches to become a resource in their community for dementia caregivers. My favorite thing is to help dementia caregivers find meaning and a sense of peace in their experience; believe me, it can be found! I am a graduate of United Theological Seminary (D.Min.), The Methodist Theological School in Ohio (M.Div.) and Ohio Northern University (B.A. Education). In addition to writing for Guideposts' Strength and Grace, I tirelessly advocate for nursing aides - the great ones, who are the backbone of healthcare and am obsessed with my new Fitbit.  I live near Cleveland, Ohio and share 7 wonderful daughters with my husband, Leo.
