          Cheryl A. Kuba, MA

As a professional in health care and aging for more than 15 years, Cheryl A. Kuba is both gerontologist and humorist. She is uniquely qualified to help her audiences navigate the journey down the road with aging parents. Cheryl has extensive professional and personal experience, having worked with the Illinois Hospital Association, and as executive director of a Chicago based retirement community.

Her professional expertise in enriching the lives of seniors also comes from her role as the regional marketing director for a national senior housing corporation, marketing for a skilled nursing facility, and work in home care. This, combined with her recent personal experience supervising the care of her own elderly parents, demonstrates the caliber of Cheryl’s expertise.
