This week’s guest, for Bold Moves Podcast Episode 217 Lynette Whiteman has some bold moves! Lynette started a therapy dog program at my nonprofit with the purpose to visit with people who have dementia and their caregivers to brighten their lives. At first, Lynette’s board and staff thought she was nuts for creating this program with the possibility of insurance issues and “what if’s”. There was no program like this in the US so it was breaking new ground. Lynette preserved and they are going into our 10th year with 50 “volunteer” dogs and also have chapters in 7 other states. Lynette followed her passion and has improved so many lives. Please enjoy Bold Moves Podcast Episode 217 Lynette Whiteman!
