“I’m told I’m shaking things up in this area, and I’m proud of that. I guess if I had to say who I think a maverick is in my life, it would be me. I’m forging trails that haven’t been forged and I am addicted to how much we are impacting people’s lives.”Kelli Casto, Founder of Saving Our Seniors and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant
