If you stop by InMotion on a typical Thursday afternoon, you are likely to be greeted by Kathy Cohen’s welcoming smile. Kathy, the daughter of InMotion founder Allan Goldberg, has been volunteering at InMotion for the past two years. A current resident of Moreland Hills, she is a licensed independent social worker currently taking time off to raise her two children.
“My Happy Place” are three words that Kathy uses to describe her volunteer experience at InMotion. “It has enriched my life on so many levels. To have someone walk in directly from their doctor with a new diagnosis of PD and have our community welcome them with open arms and hearts is so fulfilling,” she says. “To be able to provide hope and encouragement is the most fulfilling.”
Unable to pinpoint a specific experience as the most touching she has witnessed at InMotion she states, “There are too many to count. Every day that I am here is special. To see clients smile and engage in activities that they never thought possible is immensely satisfying!”
Kathy feels there is nothing not to like at InMotion! “This is such a loving, warm, safe place for those with PD, their caretakers and families. We have made a wonderful community with wonderful people.”
