Nadine’s most important role was as a 15 year caregiver to her mother. That journey changed everything. A year after her mother’s death, Nadine knew without a doubt that caregiving consulting, education and coaching would be her life’s work. For the past nine years she has care managed, consulted with and supported caregivers across the country.

In launching her inaugural book, Tears In My Gumbo, The Caregiver’s Recipe for Resilience, Nadine has also launched a movement she calls, “The Care-ocity” Movement where her mission is to raise awareness and spread the message of caring around the world.
Spreading the message of care-ocity means sounding the alarm in our churches, organizations and businesses about the impact that caregiving is having on the 44 million caregivers, caring. Nadine conducts Caregiver Symposiums/intensives for churches and lunch and learn series for area businesses. She is both an impassioned and impactful speaker and speaks around the country. Her book has received wide acclaim and now has a companion curriculum for the book for health care students on the college and university level. Dillard University’s School of Nursing is the first school to add the book to its nursing curriculum.
