Gray Matter Therapy was created to document my journey in learning more about providing person-centered, evidence-based geriatric therapy services.You will find blog posts sharing what I’ve learned as well as education resources and treatment materials to help you provide great care.
My adventure into speaking out about SNF ethics began in the summer of 2013 and continually evolves. I participate in invited speaking opportunities to empower other therapists to become advocates for ethics in the SNF setting. I believe eldercare should be person rather than profit centered. I also people people with progressive neurological diseases such as dementia and other forms of cognitive impairment deserve quality services to enhance their environments and optimize their quality of life.
I attended Indiana University (English Education, BS), University of Texas at Austin (Communication disorders, leveling work), and Texas State University (Communication Disorders, MS). In addition to my work with Gray Matter Therapy, I hold a volunteer position on the Colorado HealthOp Board of Directors, where I serve as an advocate for member-centered health insurance.
