Co-Founder and Administrative Director Rebecca L Gietman , BA in Psychology, Juris Doctorate. Rebecca has been involved in a variety of not-for-profits throughout the years that were aimed at providing services and resources to individuals struggling in one way or another. For the past few years she has been a care partner for her parents, and bemoaned the lack of resources (or ability to locate existing resources) to support them. She also has assisted many clients whose family members did not do adequate advance planning. She partnered with Lynn Ann in order to help fill that void.
