    Margaret has been a critical care nurse for over a decade and a nurse anesthetist with her Master’s degree in anesthesia for ten years. She is a leader in the movement to help patients and families to set individual healthcare goals that reflect their values for the last chapter of their lives. She is dedicated to helping people make better decisions, have less stress and to prevent suffering for themselves and for the loved ones for whom they are caring.

    Mark Servais’ professional life has been about creating technical solutions for companies around content, branding, and marketing efforts. As a technology leader and a 5-time Sitecore Technical MVP, Mark has created solutions that fit customer needs and abilities. He current works for Humana providing guidance and expertise with the content managment platform.

    Mark’s non-professional life consists of being a full-time co-caregiver to his son with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. For the past 16 years, Mark and his family have learned to adapt and find ways to solve challenges as Mark's son's condition has progressed.
