Ms. Doris is active in the Alzheimer’s Association as a Walk to End Alzheimer’s Committee Member. As someone who has witnessed a loved one suffer from the disease, she is understanding and passionate about helping clients navigate the hurdles of Alzheimer’s, dementia and the aging process in general. This has led to a professional interest in assisting clients with long-term care planning and the Medicaid process.
