Why I Care

"Throughout my career, I've been interested in helping people find information and resources they'll need to deal with challenging situations. I've worked as a grantwriter for some innovative nonprofits in the San Francisco Bay Area; I've also worked for publishers providing content about healthy living, organic gardening, and Baby Boomers. Here at Caring.com, I get to work with an incredible team of people who are innovating new technologies and services -- and maintaining deep commitment to our social mission.

"In my own life, I'm having the privilege of watching two amazing 90+ grandmothers gracefully cope with all the challenges that aging brings. I'm proud to know that Caring.com is helping families like mine support loved ones through difficult transitions and growing care needs."
