GET TO KNOW CYNTHIA
Those who know me well say that I’m:
- An Advocate for my Clients – I truly believe every problem has a solution and will work tirelessly with you to help find it.
- Resourceful – My background in a variety of healthcare settings has allowed me to establish extensive community partnerships which assist me in finding the best options for my clients.
I chose to become a life care coordinator because I have admired Kris Maser’s work over the years and wanted to be a part of her firm’s vision to help people live their best life by planning for their future. We provide a unique and needed service to our clients, offering a holistic approach in helping them coordinate and manage their legal, financial and personal care issues.
I believe that together we can find a solution to every problem.
I can be resourceful and persistent.
My greatest accomplishment is my skill and ability to relate to various people from different backgrounds. I believe you can find you have more in common with people than not. I am able to connect with individuals from all walks of life and find things we have in common.
I’m making a difference by using my skills and knowledge to function as a conduit between clients, health care professionals and community resources.
Quote me… To paraphrase Chuck Swindoll, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you handle it.”
My next challenge is to travel down the Amazon river.
On my bookshelf is The Gift by Lewis Hyde.
Seven words that describe me are Animal lover (especially dogs), adventurous, tenacious, open minded, empathetic, compassionate.
One thing most people don’t know about me is I went shark cage diving in South Africa.
When I’m not working, I love to travel, spend time at my parents’ hobby farm, outings with my friends and connecting with my nieces and nephews.
