Passionate about preserving priceless memories for future generations Memories In Writing owes its beginnings to Lachelles’ passion for preserving life histories. Her fascination with personal stories reaches back to childhood. “Growing up, I worked at my mom’s publishing company,” she recalls. “We’d take customers’ handwritten, typed, or spoken stories and transform them into finished books. Although we worked on everything from cookbooks to fiction, I quickly realized that my favorites were memoir projects.” Lachelle relished
While in college, Lachelle volunteered at hospices, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes, and through this experience she developed a strong bond with seniors as well as the tools to guide them through preserving their life stories. “My grandmother moved to a memory care facility—it saddens my family and me to see her slowly but surely losing the essence of herself as her memory slips away. My experience with my grandmother inspired me to found Memories In Writing, so that other families have access to an easy way to preserve someone’s memories and unique wisdom.”
