Kathy Ritchie

is Next Avenue's Health and Caregiving Editor. She has spent more than a decade talking about aging issues, first as a caregiver for her own mother who had frontotemporal degeneration; then as a reporter at the NPR-member station in Phoenix. Kathy's personal experience has given her a professional purpose, and over the years she has reported on the myriad challenges and experiences of older Americans. Many of her stories have aired on NPR's national magazine show, Here & Now. She also produced a four-part podcast about life after dementia.
