We have been friends and colleagues for more than 20 years. Prior to beginning A Move Handled With Care, LLC, we helped our own parents with moves to smaller homes, assisted living and Alzheimer's care. As adult children, we understand the decision making, conflicting emotions and time commitment involved in a move and the added complexities when a parent lives out-of-state. We are both married with grown children and one precious grandchild. There is no other job we would rather be doing at this stage of our lives. We have the passion, desire and optimistic attitude to guide you successfully through your move.
