I would love to walk you through my journey about how I became an online dementia coach and business coach.
I have always had a passion for caring for the elderly, specifically those with dementia. Throughout high school and college I was a nursing home volunteer, intern, then a live-in caregiver.
During my journey, I noticed that some nursing facilities don’t treat those with dementia like people... They are just working with the knowledge or experience they have, but they are not dementia educated. I saw families struggling to care for their loved ones as well. There is so much you need to know in order to be able to keep your loved one independent or at home. They are often left with just the disease diagnosis and no instruction manual.

This is where I come in! Upon receiving my dementia specialist credential and completing my social work degree, I started Dementia Care Advocates at 19 years old.
My mission is to educate caregivers on how to properly care for those with dementia to reduce stress on the caregiver and provide a better life for those with dementia.
I was going to be a speaker, a traveling expert, a teacher. I was going to go nursing home to nursing home educating and making a huge impact.
I have UC (ulcerative colitis) and extreme IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome). This wasn't anything new. I have had these problems affect me every couple weeks or months for years. They are debilitating in ways I wish were "easy" to explain, but in 2019 I was in and out of the hospital. I was having flare ups daily. I was panicked. I had a degree and I was so excited to become great, but my health wasn't having it.
I decided to boss up and start a business online. Little did I know this would be the best decision of my life. Plus after a few months of holistic approaches I am proud to say, no more flare ups! Yay remission!
After creating this online school and community...I fell in love with entrepreneurship. I fell in love with making money in my sleep, not answering to anyone, traveling whenever I want, and changing lives. SO I started my next BIG goals.
Towards the end of 2019, I became an online business coach for women who also want to create their dream lives. I help women create amazing offers their clients are dying for. I help women up-level their mindset to become a true CEO. I help women attract their dream clients effortlessly. I do a lot, and it all lights a fire in my heart. I am so grateful for this journey and for you!
