  • Body: Krystal is currently prioritizing the restfulness aspects of her brain wellness. For years she has worked to manage her own neurological health issues which impact her sleep. She is also exploring different types of meditation and striving to make this a daily practice. (Drumming is currently her favorite but she prefers this experience with a group!)

  • Heart: Krystal can typically be found curled up reading a good book (likely related to the brain) with her weighted dog blankets and fat cat. Her adorable, fun, witty nieces and nephews make her heart smile along with her handsome husband Jake.

Patricia Faust,

Director of Brain Wellness

About Patricia...

Patricia is honored to be the Director of Brain Wellness for the Virtual Brain Health Center. This venture promises to be the highlight of her career. Patricia is a Gerontologist, Brain Health Specialist, and Certified Clinical Aromatherapist. She drives all of her programs and presentations through PCF Consulting. She authors a well-known blog, My Boomer Brain, which impacts an international audience and has grown to include speaking, coaching, consulting, and teaching. Patricia is the Director of Successful Senior Aging with Wellness Wishes, a health non-profit organization. Through this position, she is able to reach underserved seniors and share the power of brain health.

  • Mind: In her third act, when Patricia was 50 years old, she embarked on a career change and learning curve to broaden her training at the Ohio Academy of Holistic Health and at Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati. Patricia obtained her BA in Gerontology, a Certificate in Clinical Aromatherapy, and a Nursing Home Administrators license. She continued her training at the Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and received her Master’s in Gerontological Studies degree to make a difference in the lives of aging adults. Patricia is driven by the knowledge that we can change our brains and actually prevent Alzheimer’s disease- this is her passion.

  • Body: After two automobile accidents two weeks apart, Patricia decided to change her life course. There are always challenges to overcome as we move through our path in life. Some health roadblocks along the way have made Patricia take a step back and use the brain healthy lifestyle lessons that she teaches. She is able to use her own experiences with an aging brain and aging body as the stimulus to get other aging adults moving to take good care of themselves.

  • Heart: Patricia has two teenage granddaughters who amaze her with their creativity, intellect, and world views. She loves learning how Gen Z thinks, especially when she is working with aging adults all the time. A new granddaughter brings everything back to beginnings- it is impossible for Patricia not to smile when she sees this little one laugh. It is the best of both worlds and she feels so fortunate to have such a loving family.

Kali Sarver

Kali is grateful and excited to be an intern for the VBHC for the Spring 2021 semester. She is a Senior at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She is in two research labs and is currently working on her honors thesis in one of the labs. Kali is currently going through the recruitment process for doctoral programs to pursue cognitive psychology and neuroscience. Her goal is to research with the older adult community who have neurodegenerative diseases and find ways to improve quality of life and longevity among these patients.

  • Mind: Kali is an undergraduate at Miami University and has a major in Psychology and a minor in Gerontology. She prides herself on being a great student and has made the Dean’s List for five semesters and the President’s List twice in a row. Kali will be graduating with departmental honors this May. She has experience working in a personal care home as a nurse’s aide and thoroughly enjoyed this experience. She plans to research with older adults who have neurodegenerative diseases as a way to advocate for this community.

  • Body: Admittedly, exercise is not something Kali looks forward to doing. She knows exercise is good for her health, so she makes an effort to be active throughout the week. She enjoys yoga and rowing and will occasionally accompany her friend to weight training. Her favorite form of activity is taking a long walk outside and allowing herself to appreciate nature. Kali also makes a conscious effort to eat healthily and loves brain-healthy foods like various fruits, fish (in the form of sushi), and avocados.

  • Heart: When she is at school, Kali’s favorite thing to do in her free time is binge watch her favorite TV shows with her roommates and her recently adopted kitten. When she is back in her hometown, she cherishes spending time with her boyfriend and her family dogs. Kali also loves listening to music and crime-themed podcasts whenever possible.
