I started playing chess in 2008 and found a passion in the game to fight against cognitive dysfunction and memory loss especially in aging communities.
With attention to strong family bonds, I have worked to build a presence that I truly hope will bring lasting partnerships with aging communities in multi-generational living settings commonly called the "sandwich generation" of baby boomers.
Chess Made Fun has networked with chess educators and enthusiasts to better understand product applications, and developed programs that build on what groups can do naturally.
Some of our opportunities have included Compassionate Care Hospice, Medford Care Center and Rachel’s Wish Foundation.
If you see potential here, or have interest in holistic therapies, I stay active in recreation therapy, educational psychology and geriatrics. Find me at local chess tournaments, disc golf, ball outings or playing chess outside at my favorite park. ♟
