CR, UDCR, CAPS

I’ve been a kitchen and remodeling specialist for over 30 years.  As my own parents grew older I saw a real need to help seniors stay in their homes.  I love what I do because I help people stay at home and avoid the astronomical costs for assisted living.

Certified Environmental Access Consultants
The Certified Environmental Access Consultants (C.E.A.C.) certification was created to reduce the disparity in training and practice found among professionals who evaluate the environmental access needs of the aging-in-place and physically challenged, and to promote independence and empowerment among the physically challenged and elderly. The Certified Environmental Access Consultant credential was launched to answer the distinct need for formal education, validation and credibility in this rapidly exploding field. Professionals certified in independent living solutions and accessible home modifications gain valuable career enhancement that can be immediately applied to their professional careers.
