As a Cognitive Enrichment Specialist, I constantly utilize my national and international experiences, knowledge of foreign languages (German and Italian), my performing abilities and powers of improvisation, along with my absolute love of history and baked goods (I’m a pastry chef), to help create worthwhile, meaningful, inspiring, interactive, and joyous experiences for my clients. I use my superpowers  of a well-honed imaginization combined with my sharp organizational faculties to create a caring and supportive environment.
