Maria Kent Beers, one of the co-creators of the Remember Me Podcast, talks to Stephanie about how she channeled her grief into helping others and creating meaning from the difficult times in her life. Stephanie and Maria also discuss living with a mom diagnosed with FTD at a very young age while starting a family and a career.
Maria Kent Beers is a fierce advocate for Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) and ALS. Her passion for this work was fueled by her mother's diagnosis in late 2016, at the young age of 52. In 2020, Maria channeled her grief and creative talents into creating a FTD-focused podcast, Remember Me, with internet friend and fellow caregiver, Rachael Martinez. Now formally formed as Remember Me, LLC, Maria and Rachael's organization is dedicated to providing a platform for early-onset dementia resources and a loving and engaged community bonded over shared experience.
Maria lives in Boston where she is a mother to one spirited boy and wife to her college love. She is a proud graduate of Boston University's College of Communications, where she started her love of radio as a host of "BU in the Morning" Radio Show and summer intern for MTV Radio in NYC.
