Through his life and as he aged, she learned a bit about how Medicare, Medicaid and our Veteran’s system works. She truly took on the role of being an advocate for him in his final years. She feels blessed to get to provide some computer and office help with Jan, Kirsten and Kim. Gail and her family moved to Berthoud from Minnesota in 2003. When she’s not in the office, she is an involved volunteer at the Berthoud schools, loves to read, scrapbook, walk and hang out with her husband and kids.
