Facilitating the caregiving conversation will be a knowledgeable and experienced panel and will include:
Elizabeth Davis, LCSW, Palliative Care Coordinator, Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center
Liz Davis was born and raised in Indianapolis. She studied social work as an undergraduate at Indiana University and graduated with a master’s degree in social work from IUPUI in 2008. Immediately following graduation, she began her career at Roudebush VA Medical Center and has worked in acute medicine, acute psychiatry, and has been in the role of palliative care coordinator since August 2021.
As the palliative care coordinator at Roudebush VA Medical Center, Davis works to connect veterans and their families with the VA benefits they deserve. She is passionate about collaborating with community hospice agencies to help bridge the gap between veteran’s and the VA at end of life.
Davis lives in Indianapolis with her husband who she met while serving in the Peace Corps in Ecuador and their four children. She loves coaching toddler soccer, volunteering with refugees and traveling.
Bill Krueper, Paradigm Health Hospice Care Veteran Volunteer
Bill Krueper is a retired U.S. Navy pilot who served for 20years. He was born in South Bend, Indiana and graduated from Ball State University. He currently lives in Indianapolis with his wife, three daughters, two sons, two dogs, and a cat.
Krueper is a consultant/project manager for a health care system. There, he works to get veterans employed and builds their DOD SkillBridge program. He is a veteran volunteer with Paradigm Health, member of American Legion Post 3, a pontoon captain, and strives to dominate every day.
Carmen Johnson, LCSW, Paradigm Health Hospice Social Worker and HVPI Secretary
Carmen Johnson is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) specializing in hospice and palliative care.
Though Hoosier born and raised, Johnson began her collegiate education at Brigham Young University in 2008 and finished with my master’s degree in social work at the University of Utah in May 2017. Following graduation, not too long after her return home to the Hoosier state, she started work in hospice and palliative care. In 2022, Johnson joined the leadership committee for the Hospice Veteran Partnership of Indiana (HVPI), a coalition of hospice partners working to support Indiana Veterans at end of life.
Her collegiate experiences, religious ministry, and service-oriented family culture fostered Davis’ zeal for social justice rooted in honoring her own intersectionality, being a witness to others’ experiences, and engagement in social change efforts and education. Her role as a hospice and palliative care social worker has brought invaluable opportunities for service, noteworthy lessons on the importance of community, and nurtured a deeper personal understanding on the meaning of life.
When needing to wind down for “me-time,” Davis enjoys traveling and hiking with my partner, reading, and cuddling with my feline fur-babes (Coolio, Shiloh, and Grace).
