NOVEMBER 10-11, 2017: CHICAGO
Join me in Chicago for the Second Annual National Caregiving Conference and experience two days filled with inspirational speakers (like Teepa Snow!) and workshops. I'll be co-presenting, Think About It. And Change Everything with Grit, Grace, and Gratitude, with Deb Kelsey-Davis of Soul2Soul.
I'll also be hosting a panel discussion titled, Your After Life / Bolder Than Before: How Death Taught Me to Live.
And...I'll be offering an intensive workshop session for family caregiving professionals titled, Boldly + Beautifully Branded, It's Your Business, where I'll teach attendees about creating a cohesive "look" for their caregiving business that will help them put their best foot forward.

THE NEW YORK TIMES: MARCH 14, 2017:
I had the privilege of being interviewed by The New York Times for the article, Pressed Into Caregiving Sooner Than Expected which highlights some of the unique circumstances of being a caregiver under the age of 50.
Each of the caregivers interviewed gives a top-of-the-waves glimpse into a part of their larger story.
I encourage you to have a look and would love to know your thoughts, especially if you are a younger caregiver.
THE LIVELY SHOW
Hear me speak with host, Jess Lively, about how I ended up in my intuition-led career as a Certified Caregiving Consultant and how her course, Life With Intention Online, helped get me here.
This 36-minute episode is less about the daily acts of caregiving but of the far reaching and surprising effect it can have on our life.

DECEMBER 2 + 3, 2016
I flew to Chicago and was a panelist in these discussions:
For current family caregivers:
Preparing for the Future
For former family caregivers:
Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone
This conference was filled with workshops, speakers, inspiration, practical knowledge and fun (hello, caregiver fashion show!). What I found inspiring was that all of the presenters spoke to finding joy within the difficult role of family caregiving. I can't wait to attend next year. Perhaps I'll meet you there!
Want to learn about "Finding Your Joy During Caregiving"? Then watch my interview with Leslie Cottrell-Simonds of The Visionary Passage and learn ways to find the silver lining that does exist within the dreary clouds of caregiving. We talk about what joy looks like during caregiving, training your mind see the gratitudes within your heart, of being present, my 1 x 1 rule, and more.
30-minute run time.
