Carol Spargo Pierskalla graduated from the counseling psychology program at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois with a Ph.D. and a specialty in gerontology, the study of aging. Over the next years she had the opportunity to launch the National Support Center for Families of the Aging. From this organization came the Seminar for Families of the Aging. Although Dr. Pierskalla enjoys older people and is a caregiver herself (her mother turned 100 in 2012) her special concern has been and continues to be the families of the elderly.
