With an international educational background and upbringing, Lizette brings a unique perspective to the table, incorporating her occupational therapy training from South Africa with her 30 years of experience in caring for people with dementia in the USA.

In 2020, Lizette established her company, Think Different Dementia, LLC with the goal of helping families committed to keeping their loved one with dementia at home, do so without sacrificing their own lives, health or relationships.
