She put her career on pause and chose to become a full-time caregiver for 6 years for her husband after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer. After his passing, she decided that she isn’t done! Dottie is currently creating a podcast that will explore what others who, like herself, are not done yet. Of all her accomplishments, the most important title is who her 4 extraordinary grandchildren call Grand Dottie.
