As a little girl growing up in Kansas, Angela Neale Clark often rode her bicycle to the local skilled nursing facility to help out with the elders in her community. Today, that early formative experience of aiding senior citizens stills inspires and drives the organization she founded. Living Your Choice is based on the sole mission of helping seniors handle difficult and confusing life transitions. 

As Chief Executive Officer, Mrs. Clark believes strongly in providing options that match with an individual’s past experience as well as their vision for their future. This approach guides Living Your Choice’s service model in helping seniors and their families find the right senior housing, or other senior services needed to support a person’s aging process. Over the course of her 20-plus years in the senior living industry, Mrs. Clark has been dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of seniors. Prior to founding Living Your Choice, she held executive level positions with several top-rated providers. She has led thousands of industry leaders and as a champion for individuals during the decision-making process involved in choosing senior-living options. Mrs. Clark is committed with all her heart to making a difference with seniors every day.

Carrie Jones - Secretary

Carrie Jones, a native of Southern Illinois, moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18 to pursue a music career.  She was a top finalist on the hit television show “The Pussycat Dolls”, which aired on the CW network. Shortly after the show ended she was sought out by Grammy and Oscar winning producers to do background vocals and session work.  In 2011 she joined a girl-group and signed a major record deal with Sony. The group eventually parted ways, and then Carrie’s life took a drastic change..

Carrie’s family informed her that they were unable to reach her 88 year- old great uncle, who resided in California at the time.  After walking up and down the halls of hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities (approximately 30 in total), she finally found him in a nursing home a few weeks later.  His first words to her were “I was beginning to think no one would find me in here”.  At that moment she decided to drop everything and help him.  She was horrified when he told her about the abuse he had suffered.  She had no other option but to educate herself about elder abuse, which she diligently pursued. 

Carrie now works for an attorney and dedicates her spare time to raise awareness about elder abuse.  Some of her accomplishments include speaking to Rotary Clubs, local hospitals, and doing radio/print interviews.  In 2016, Carrie was asked to be on the board of directors of the Kasem Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to support victims and survivors of elder abuse, and change legislation. 

“I reached out to Kerri Kasem on her public Facebook page after watching her story play out in the media. Sadly, our stories were similar.  I knew that Kerri’s voice would be heard louder than mine because of her influence.  Now, I am beyond blessed to have found an extended family with Kasem Cares.  I am encouraged to fight every day, because of the people who share their stories with us.  You are not alone.  We WILL change the way that our beloved elders are treated!”

- Carrie L. Jones 

Kelly Rooney

Kelly Rooney has been a hairdresser for almost forty years. She has a daughter Lacy who is thirty.
Kelly is the first daughter born to Mickey Rooney and Barbara Rooney, she  has three siblings. Kerry, Kimmy, Michael.
She is also an advocate for elder abuse, after she and her siblings became aware of their fathers elder abuse.
Towards the end of her fathers life, Kelly and family members were kept from seeing him. It was gradual isolation through the years!
Then her dad went before a judge where he was put into conservator ship. He was put into the hands of a step brother, and  wife. Also a conservator of the court whom should not be allowed to over see anyone's loved one!
Kelly testified about this horrible experience before the California senate, along with Kerri Kasem. We need to be watchful over our loved ones and encourage anyone to ask for help against abuse.

Rick Black

Rick, and his wife Terri, were first exposed to fraudulent guardianships and probate exploitation in June 2013. His wife’s father, Del, had retired in Las Vegas and due to the deception of family friend Helen Natko, his Alzheimer’s type dementia allowed Helen to exploit him. When her deception, exploitation, and theft was discovered Terri came to her father’s aid but Natko isolated Del in her home. He was never allowed to see or speak to his family alone after the discovery and never allowed to leave her home with family until his death in July 2015.

Law enforcement refused to engage even though Terri presented three forged checks totaling $220,000 and evidence of Natko’s abuse and isolation. The police instructed Terri to file for guardianship of her father as they viewed the situation as a “civil” matter.


Commission Jon Norheim ignored established law, estate documents, and the evidence of theft, isolation, forgery, neglect, and exploitation by Natko against Del. Natko ultimately prevailed in gaining guardianship over Del in July 2014. Rick ultimately got law enforcement engaged and in October 2014 Natko was criminally indicted for felony theft and exploitation of Del.


The family lost over $1 million in the ordeal. Natko was criminally convicted for exploiting Del in April 2017 and sentenced to five years’ probation. Family Court continues to deny her criminal acts against Del.


Motivated by the experience, Rick built a coalition of over 50 families who lost over $40 million from 2010-2015 due to fraudulent adult guardianships in Nevada. He gained the support of local media, elected officials, and the Nevada attorney general to investigate widespread corruption endorsed by Commissioner Jon Norheim in adult guardianship proceedings. He participated in the Nevada Supreme Court’s Guardianship Reform Commission meetings and helped develop new statutes to improve adult guardianship adjudication. The efforts of the coalition has yielded 18 arrests and 17 convictions over the last 4 years. Infamous professional guardian April Parks, attorney Noel Simpson and coworkers Mark Simmons and Gary Taylor were convicted in November 2018.


Rick left his job as an executive of a global textile company in early 2015 to devote himself fulltime volunteering for guardianship reforms and to assist other families. Rick has investigated over 500 suspected fraudulent guardianship cases nationally and counseled over 1,200 families. He coined the phrase “isolate the victim, defame legitimate family, and liquidate the estate” to describe the hallmarks of fraudulent guardianships and probate fraud. Rick’s efforts were the genesis of the documentary “The Guardians” by Billie Mintz which describes the systemic exploitation of vulnerable persons of wealth in Las Vegas via fraudulent guardianships.


He regularly speaks on the issues and has spoken at the National Forum on Financial Exploitation by Conservators sponsored by the National Center for State Courts and the Department of Justice in March 2017 and the KasemCares/California District Attorneys Conference in December 2017. Rick and Terri actively lobby for improved protections for vulnerable adults from the predatory legal community nationally.


Rick, his wife Terri, and Athena Roe, JD of Colorado Springs founded the Center for Estate Administration Reform in early 2018 to advocate for reforms nationwide.

Now nearly 35 years later, she still owns the downtown Kansas landmark, known as the "Trudy Andes Campbell" building".  

The property consists of a Movie Theater, downtown apartments and is home of the Kansas Republican Headquarters.

 

Trudy Andes Campbell started her career at an early age. 

At seven years old she was working on the ranch feeding cattle, riding pastures, and going with her father to check his oil wells. 

At the age of twelve Trudy's father was killed in a wheat Truck wreck, and by age thirteen she enrolled in Patricia Steven's Modeling and Fashion College for the next four years where she went on to win Miss Teenage Kansas and was elected FFA Sweetheart.

These are the same principles the Kasem Cares organization was built on.
