I opened the Charlotte-based geriatric care management and counseling firm, Caregiving Corner, in 2005 to assist caregivers of older adults in navigating the long-term care system and to arm them with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions when dealing with a crisis caregiving situation. As a gerontologist and nationally certified geriatric care manager, I understand the social and psychological complexities of caregiving. I have experience working with other senior care providers, so my knowledge of the aging services network in the Charlotte, NC area is extensive. Because of my expertise, I am also frequently asked to provide training to corporations who employ Baby Boomers who are juggling caregiving and careers, marketing seminars to aging-related businesses on media relations, and various types of speaking and educational events.


Specialties: Assessments, referral & placement services, family mediation, care plan development, VA benefits application assistance, Mediation application assistance, service coordination, monitoring of long-distance caregiving situations, and crisis intervention.

I'm your blunt reminder that women were and are defined by men as being dickless. The exclusion factor—not having a penis—shows that women are consistently and purposely denied access to equal opportunities and equal pay, as well as equal treatment and recognition.  My goal is to motivate women into action, because women tend to be more passive when fighting for their own rights. We must be the change if we expect change.

I raise awareness about women's struggles through my memoir DICKOTOMY (which showcases some of the Ricks and Dicks in my life), as well as through public speaking events, and through the DICKLESS brand itself, as the "in-your-face" public service announcement that women are not ashamed of being just that: DICKLESS.

Andrea has 20 years of experience in the industry. She specializes in working with small businesses and their unique planning needs. Below is a brief reason as to why she entered into the industry and also what continues her to succeed in the business:


" I became involved in the Financial Services industry after my father was killed in a car accident. I then realized the power of what my family’s Financial Professional meant to my family during this difficult time. The important role he played in allowing us to grieve and not have to worry about the finances is what drove me to become a Financial Professional. Over the following years, I worked hard and made that same promise to many other families. Then one day I received that “call” and had to fulfill the promise I had made several years before. I was able to provide that family with the financial security I had received after my father had died. It was a career changing moment and I will forever have a passion for what we do every day."
