Vickie was invited to present at the Allegheny County Area Agency on Aging Conference in Pittsburgh, PA in November 2015. Here is a clip of her presentation on Hoarding.
"Vickie was exactly what we were looking for. She was perfect for our community. Her wealth of experience and ability to connect with residents and potential residents on the subject of downsizing was excellent. Her presentation was phenomenal – engaging, entertaining and pertinent. We definitely plan on having Vickie back, she is an amazing resource for the senior community."
--Angela Rizzo, Director of Independent Living & Community Relations
Laurel View Village
"Thanks for everything Vickie! Everyone was so pleased with your presentation! You really did a superb job and I noticed that the entire audience was highly engaged and very focused on what you had to say. There were lots of great questions too."

"Very knowledgeable, real life experience"
"Excellent presentation- learned so much"
"A lot of presentation spoke right to me and my situation with my mother"
"Vickie's insights are invaluable"
"I just wanted to say thank you again for taking time to make the car trek to Morgantown and for so graciously sharing your organization and downsizing expertise. The reaction to your presentation was overwhelmingly enthusiastic. I'm even optimistic that you motivated me to start to weed out some of the many unused, unneeded items in our house."
