Kimberly spent over 10 years in higher education, during which time she built a scholarly program studying how interprofessional and interdisciplinary teams function to reach the best shared outcome. This work translated well into her role as CEO for Elder Care Solutions, where she creates innovative strategic collaborations to provide solutions for our nation's care crisis. She is on a mission with Elder Care Solutions to help families realize a more financially positive aging and caring experience. She feels it's inexcusable that there is not a care infrastructure in place capable of supporting our aging citizens and the family members and friends taking care of them. She is convinced it is going to take an interdisciplinary approach to find solutions that will support families best and access to the money needed to provide adequate care is an essential part of the solution. Too many families are struggling to pay for care. Educating and consulting with families and connecting them to resources that can help lessen the financial strain of caregiving for our seniors is the important work that she does.
