(The following is taken from Bruce's nomination.)

Tell us about the nominee's caregiving story.
Elizabeth became the primary caregiver for her mother after her father passed away. Her mother has several health challenges. Also, she has a brother with developmental disabilities.

Tell us about the support the nominee provides. What makes it innovative? How has the support made caregiving easier or better?

Elizabeth created Happy Healthy Caregiver, offering podcasts and practical tips for self-care. She is especially savvy with social media and she also published a self-care journal this past year. Elizabeth has spoken at several events, including our 15th Annual OKC Parkinson's Caregiver Appreciation Luncheon with 140 people attending. She is also active in the Daughterhood circle in Atlanta.

How does the nominee inspire others?
Elizabeth has good energy. Her infectious sense of hope and optimism communicates well to caregivers. By sharing the stories of other caregivers on her podcast, she normalizes the experience and nudges people in the directions of their best caregiving life.

Please provide testimonials of family caregivers or former family caregivers who benefit from this support.
Attendee from OKC Parkinson's Caregiver Appreciation Luncheon: "She really helped me think about the possibilities of small things I can do and how important it is that I do them."

"Elizabeth helped us to navigate through a sea of unknown channels of care for my father in law and mother in law. She got us started in the right direction as we were too overwhelmed with the amount to do. I have attended several Daughterhood Circle meetings and saw others take their first inhale with the support received." ~ Jodi Bitler
