I guess what I want people to know about me, is how much I love the process of life care planning. It truly allow me to use all my skill sets. I taught PT at the University of Kansas; I love the research of life care planning. I was in management for about 7 years; I love the cost analysis. I have 39 year experience as a physical therapist; I love patients who are now clients. I get to do something I love!
