About Me

My Background


With over 18 years of experience in home care and dementia care, and as the Director of Dementia Friendly America Herndon, I have helped hundreds of people learn to understand and communicate with their loved ones living with dementia.  My informative, interactive, workshops have helped audiences from the Herndon Police Department to church congregations and family caregivers work better with people living with dementia.  I am a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Positive Approach to Care Certified Trainer and the recipient of Insight Memory Care's Excellence in Memory Care Award.



Toni does a great job of peeling away the layers of mystery which most of us have concerning various types of dementia.  While she tells it like it is, she also helps loved ones and other caregivers understand that there are many hopeful aspects of life as a caregiver for someone living with dementia.”  Pastor Bill Heinzman, Dranesville United Methodist Church

About Me


When I'm not working with clients, I enjoy dancing, biking, downhill skiing and spending time with my husband and  two rescue dogs, Frankie Time and Sugar. Bonus:  dancing reduces your risk of dementia by 76% - come join me on the dance floor!


Family Education and Support


I offer one-on-one consultation services by phone, email, or video.  I'm available on a hourly basis for advice, consultations or referral services.  With my 18 years of experience in dementia care, let me help you navigate the array of services and products to find the best ones to serve your needs.
