Music health allianceMusic Health Alliance Announces Certification for Biddy

The Music Health Alliance has announced its Director of Operations and Senior Care, Shelia Shipley Biddy, has now earned the title of Certified Senior Advisor. Earned through a series of courses and testing administered by the Society of Certified Senior Advisors, Biddy’s training compliments her professional skills to better serve the growing senior demographic.

“Many of our industry veterans work well beyond their retirement age, creating challenges for companies who are not geared to guide their employees outside their normal health insurance group plans,” said Biddy. “Mistakes can be made and they are often costly to the individual. With this new certification, I am better prepared to explain options and guide them to qualified resources.”

For more information about these or other services provided, contact Biddy at 615-200-6892.
