I am one of the Midwest’s foremost experts in long term care insurance. I have been a top-ranked sales person for many years in my home state and I have extensive insurance claim experience.
Prior to entering the business world, I taught for 15 years at universities with a PhD from the University of Texas in communication. In 1996 I left university teaching and spent 10 years as co-owner of a multi-practice chiropractic clinic as VP of Operations -- that means I did claim filing, accounts payable/receivable, and even emptied the trash! At the same time, I developed a career as a trainer and motivational speaker. It all changed, though, when my grandmothers faced long runs of care.... That was the catalyst for me to shift to the senior care market.
I still present seminars -- to the public & for CE credits to financial advisors, lawyers, and care community staff -- all on long term care topics. For more info on seminar topics see www.mrsltc.com.
Data indicates the USA is greying. I believe we are on the verge of a nightmare in elder care. Families who are ill-informed and plan poorly will have fewer choices and less quality care. I'd like our company to be the one who spreads the word to avert that. So often I find people plan for retirement -- save and invest -- but they don't plan on how to keep their hard earned savings in the event of care. I tell people, "Growing old isn't for sissies! If you are going to grow old, you got to be tough -- and you better plan for it."
In my spare time, I ride bikes...push bike (you know, pedal and sweat?). I average about 1500 miles per year on a recumbent and have grandiose designs to ride across America and pedal across large sections of Europe. Hey! A girl has to have dreams…
