I am a passionate speaker, writer, and listener. As the founder of Cardinal, LLC, I provide educational programs, books, blogs, videos, and podcasts about issues related to aging, caregiving, and the end of life.
I have a rather curious career path–to say the very least! Petroleum geologist. Financial services representative. Spiritual Director. Hospice chaplain. Palliative care educator. Educational consultant. National speaker. Writer. Although curious, my various professional adventures enrich my current creative endeavors.
I am a firm believer that knowledge is power–particularly when confronted by the challenges posed by aging, caregiving, and the end of life. Instead of reacting out of fear, we are much better served by informed responses. Thus, I am passionate about presenting programs on complex and emotional topics in captivating ways.
Whether speaking, writing, or listening, my goal is the same. I want people to feel seen, heard, and supported. By sharing heartfelt stories that convey life-giving insights, I strive to serve and to care for my audience in meaningful ways.
