  • Visionary and advocate of ethics and best practices for those advising seniors
  • President, Founding Member of Greater Denver Referral and Placement Alliance
  • Instructor on Aging at OLLI (Osher Life-Long Learning Institute) University of Denver

As the President and one of the founding members of the first and only Denver area regulatory and best practices trade association regarding ethical and moral practices for elder placement and referral agents in the greater Denver metro area (Greater Denver Referral and Placement Alliance), I have helped shape the industry of elder living into a viable and ethical industry. I work with heart to find holistic and well considered solutions for our clients, always ensuring that their needs and goals are met.

I am passionate about speaking to audiences on the aging process utilizing best practices, servant leadership, and ethics for the ever-changing environment that is Denver’s aging population. I am a featured speaker on radio, at educational seminars, for corporations, and for OLLI (University of Denver, Osher Life-Long Learning Institute).

Colorado has experienced tremendous growth in the senior care scene the past few years and with that growth comes an influx of potentially poorly ill-informed advice for our elders in the community. Aging needs are often crisis-driven, making decisions overwhelming and confusing. In 2013, I wrote my thesis on aging in Colorado while obtaining my masters from the University of Denver. Utilizing my thesis as a guide, I founded Aging at 5280 to address the aging process by understanding all resources available, professionalism, and ethics to benefit our aging population.

The team at Aging at 5280 assists families in navigating their roadmap in aging successfully. Like your fingerprint, which is unique to you, we all age differently. We are committed to guiding you in developing your distinct roadmap to aging.

​”The first step in the evolution of ethics is a sense of solidarity with other human beings”

– Albert Schweitzer

Aging at 5280 is here to help elders and their families navigate through the healthcare system and customize a plan to meet their needs.

I enjoy speaking to audiences regarding best practices, servant leadership and ethics for the ever changing environment that is Denver’s aging population.
