Tisa Johnson has owned and operated Senior Transitioning Services of Central Iowa since 2015. A former social worker, she recognizes the many practical and emotional factors involved in making a later-life move, and she and her team seek to make big transitions as smooth as possible by handling logistics such as packing, unpacking and setup of a new space, emptying a previous home, and the often innumerable other details.

She offers presentations frequently on downsizing, moving, and related topics. https://www.seniortransitioning.com/about
