After thirty years in healthcare, working throughout the United States in the senior housing industry, Mara's life and career trajectory was forever changed when a close family member was stricken with Alzheimer's.
Eventually, Mara stepped away from a successful career to write full-time, in the hopes of helping others impacted by this disease. Her best-selling book, “When Caring Takes Courage: An Interactive Guide for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregivers” has been well-received and strongly recommended.
Mara continues to be a sought after speaker and valued care partner for families and organizations affected by Alzheimer’s/dementia as she shares her positive and empowering message. Helping families, like her own, that have loved or lost someone special to this terrible disease is her greatest passion.
