Here’s a little blurb from The Lost in Translation Global Summit. Read a little about Fritzi and then listen to the replay her interview below.
Fritzi is a Marine Corps daughter. With a brother born in North Carolina (Camp Lejuene), a brother born in Hawaii (Kailua) and a brother born at Camp Pendleton in California, Fritzi lived 14 places by young adulthood. Her most dramatic move was her senior year of high school from California to Virginia. Fritzi’s family went to California with her dad’s fourth deployment to Vietnam, and then to Japan before returning to California, when he retired from the Marines. Transitioning through these moves offered Fritzi the moxie and underpinnings to develop new skills and understanding in her mission to help older adults retain their independence and dignity while giving family members desired peace of mind.
