Brent's passion for her subject started when she was caring for her own father, who was diagnosed with dementia in 1997. From that experience, she found that neither she nor her family truly understood not only the medical challenges related to aging and chronic illness, but also the financial and emotional weight that these bring to bear on a family.

Brent is working to place a bill on the 2014 California ballot to protect seniors, veterans, and their caregivers from vexatious litigation by other family members, and has appeared before the California State legislative oversight committee in Sacramento, CA on February 19, 2013.
