What inspired you to go into this field and join Georgia Memory Net?
I have wanted to join GMN since I first learned of this program years ago. I have always been passionate about helping others and this program certainly does that. Individuals living with dementia benefit from GMN and so do care partners. I personally know what it is like to be a care partner. Having support is a MUST to successful caregiving. I am thankful that I can be part of a program that can provide that support.

I have two dogs and a cat. I have a silver lab named Marley, a boston terrier named Ruby, and we call our cat, Kiddy.

This is a hard question, I have several favorites. Losing Isaiah is definitely a favorite. I will just say that it is a very powerful movie with a happy ending.
