Our Story

Why We’re Here

We all know and care about someone that is aging. We are here to be a resource and encouragement as you navigate the world with your aging loved one. These times can often feel overwhelming- we've been there! We will tell the stories, ask the questions, share the information and encourage those listening along the way. In every episode, our goal is to lead with empathy and end in hope. Our hope is to create a sense of community, inspiring a vision of life-long learning and engagement.

The Foundation

 

I am an advocate and connector for the aging community, dedicating my career to enhancing the well-being of older adults, their families, caregivers, and healthcare professionals. With a deep-rooted passion stemming from my personal experience and over 20 years in aging and senior living services, I established willGather—a platform aimed at amplifying initiatives and resources in the care economy.

As the creator, host, and producer of the willGather Podcast: Navigating the World with Your Aging Loved One, our podcast amplifies and elevates initiatives, support, and resources in the care economy. I interview caregivers, experts, CEOs, founders, authors, educators, and thought leaders who are doing incredible work for older adults, family caregivers, and the healthcare community.

Our content covers a wide range of topics, including dementia education, age tech, health and wellness, caregiving resources, legal and financial guidance, emotional support, and more.

Each episode of our widely recognized podcast, which ranks in the top 15% shared globally via Spotify, frequently appears on Apple charts in various countries, is rated as the #3 best senior living podcast by Feedspot, and is among the top 5% most popular on Listen Score, features expert interviews, real-life stories, and practical advice, making it a valuable resource for anyone caring for aging loved ones.

My approach is multidimensional—from founding Gigi Betty Co. by willGather, in honor of my grandma, to co-founding Think Tank, serving on advisory boards and as a consultant in the age tech and care economy sectors. My speaking engagements resonate nationally, fueled by my expertise in senior living and caregiver support.

My academic background with a Bachelor of Science in Human Services: Social Gerontology, coupled with certifications and hands-on experience, underscores my commitment to supporting older adults. My tenure as a Director at a leading senior living community has been marked by innovative leadership and enhanced resident engagement.

At willGather, we envision a world where the journey of aging is a shared one, empowering caregivers with resources and hope. I continue to foster professional partnerships, develop market strategies, and engage audiences with a singular goal—enriching the lives of our older adults and those who care for them.
