About Gray Matters Alliance
Vicki Spraul, President of Gray Matters Alliance, LLC. has over 30 years of sales, marketing and training experience in various industries. She holds a B.A. in Business Administration. Vicki’s passion for the older population led her to create Gray Matters Alliance in 2014. It was down the road that she discovered our disabled population shares a lot of the same trials and tribulations as our seniors and she wanted to serve those individuals as well.
Vicki received her certification in the Beyond Driving with Dignity program in 2014 through Keeping Us Safe, a national program which is designed to help older drivers and their families work through the complicated issues of age-related diminished driving skills. In 2016 she received the "Bill and Betty Fresch Outstanding Achievement Award, which is given to those showing unwavering dedication and compassion in helping older adults. Vicki is part of the Leadership Team at Keeping Us Safe in the role of Director of Talent Acquisition, finding those individuals that show the compassion and commitment to become a Beyond Driving with Dignity Certified Professional.
After working with families for some time, the same theme emerged, they wanted to monitor their loved ones in their daily activities so they remain safe but also wanted to give them their independence. After researching solutions Vicki decided that the GrandCare System fit the bill to solve a lot of the issues and provide peace of mind for the families. Gray Matters Alliance became a distributer for GrandCare Systems in 2016. This system is a wonderful fit for both seniors and the developmentally disabled.. Vicki’s mission is to help keep these individuals safe, connected and respected.
