I help grateful people save their life stories as books and audio playlists for their families so all generations can deeply connect forever.

I want you to share your stories often and save your life stories forever. It's as easy as telling a story at Sunday dinner with your family and friends.

I invite you to explore my website to learn more about working with me or contact me to schedule a complimentary conversation.

I'm Your Regret Preventer

When people hear about what I do, they always say, "I wish I knew you before So-and-So passed away." Their words are filled with regret.

I call myself a Regret Preventer because I can help you connect more deeply with your loved ones. I can help you say what needs to be said before it is too late. I can help you say, "I'm so glad I met you before So-and-So passed away."

Do you hear your family saying...

Before Alzheimer's hit, my mother was the strongest person I knew. I wish the world could hear her story. I miss her.

I wish I had one more day with my dad. I'd ask him if he loved me, how he stayed so strong for our family, and if he knows how proud of him I am.

I wish I could hear my mom's voice on more than a voicemail recording.

If you knew the sacrifices your grandfather made, you wouldn't act so entitled!

I want to know how Mom became the mom I know today.

My son hates reading. I wish I could convince him to read a book.

We can help your family say...

Grandma, tell me the story about living on the farm when you were a kid—again.

My great-grandfather is a hero. He was a lieutenant in WWII,  jumped out of planes, and lived in a foxhole through most of the winter. I want to be as brave as he is!

My grandmother had to feed six kids without a lot of money. I just found out how she did it, and now I know I can too.

I'm so glad I can hear my dad's voice and advice anytime I want. I cherish these recordings and read his book so often that I keep it on our coffee table.

Mom, will you sign my copy of your book? I can't wait to read your memoir! (And, may I have a copy for my best friend?)

I asked my teacher if I can write my book report on Pop-Pop's memoir. I read the whole book already!
