Agent Under Power of Attorney for Healthcare

"My attorney suggested that I select Marilyn Kriebel to be the Trustee of my Trust and to make her my Agent under my Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare. When I first met with Marilyn I knew right away that she and I would work well together… Eventually I took Marilyn up on her offer to arrange for assistance with my personal needs…Marilyn introduced me to a member of her team, Madeleine. I can't tell you what a delight Madeleine is and what a difference her assistance makes in my life."
