I have become very interested in the elder care in the past 4 years through Masters Level studies at St. Michael's college and additional certifications and trainings in the industry. I have recently completed the "Start the Conversation" facilitators training at the Visiting Nurses Association and will be attending the PCA certification course at the end of this month. I am inspired by Zalman Schachter-Shalomi's work in Spiritual Eldering presented in his book, From Aging to Sage-ing, A Profound New vision of Growing Older. Last night I attended Stephen Kiernans' presentation "Changing the Face of Dying" sponsored by the VNA and Vermont's Madison Dean Initiative. you will see from my resume my increasing credentials in the field and my personal motivation to excel. I am most proud of my decision to leave corporate america as a manufacturer's sales rep and focus my energy in the areas where I am most passionate. Though I am relatively new to elder care, I am not new to human care. I am a mother, yoga instructor, substitute teacher and waitress.
