CareGiverStory.com is proud to have as our very special guest, Coty Evans a Relationship Coach & Caregiver Advocate

Bio: A chemist by education, Coty spent 11 years as a scientist working in and directing biomedical research. He worked to design and develop biomedical devices, including an implantable glucose sensor, and co-authored many articles that can be found in publications such as Diabetes Technology and Therapeutics and Analytical Chemistry. Turning his focus from the body to the soul, he’s spent over 10 years studying relationships to help people better connect so they feel valued, heard, and appreciated.

But he and his wife's desire to ensure that his grandmother in law stays as happy and as peaceful as possible, while maintaining her integrity, is first and foremost on their minds.
