Hi! I'm Katie Cheesman. I've had a love for the elderly for as long as I can remember. As I’ve worked with this special population throughout my nursing career and in caring for my grandparents, I’ve come to know how vital they are to our society and how much we can learn from their life experiences and wisdom.

While working with them, I’ve noticed how lonely they can be, and that all they really want is for someone to sit down and listen to them.

Too often, their stories go unheard or are forgotten. 

I created The Listening Ear Project as a way to be a listening ear for this generation and to share their incredible stories that deserve to be heard. It's been such a rewarding experience for me!

When I’m not hanging out with my elderly friends, you’ll find me spending time with my husband and two little kids, scouting out new restaurants, hiking, reading, or doing yoga.

Thank you for being here and for supporting The Listening Ear Project!
