Tell us about yourself:
Founded Singleton Legal after recognizing a need for caregiver-centered legal services while caring for my mother through cancer and providing pro bono services to other caregivers. In 2018, I received the national Caregiving Visionary Award for my advocacy for and service to the caregiving community. Presently an AARP Caregiving Expert. Through AARP, I speak and write about legal and financial issues affecting caregivers. I am also a member of the Florida Bar Speakers' Bureau and speak locally and nationally about estate and life care planning for families with young children, baby boomers, and the caregiver community.
