Cavaleri is a fifth generation Coloradan living a digital nomad lifestyle. Her passion to bridge the generational divide was inspired by "Gramps": a sailor, pilot, and entrepreneur. As he grew older, Gramps' adventurous spirit and knack for enriching the lives of those around him came in the form of storytelling.

Cavaleri has independently launched a number of startups in aging services and gerontechnology. She's realized that young people who have the opportunity to learn from older generations have a greater sense of self and purpose. Her passion project, Connect The Ages, aims to create an America that values and enables opportunities for old and young.

Cavaleri's passion to bridge the generational divide is inextricably tied with a passion to bridge the digital divide. This is expressed through her work connecting students to older generations as well as her advisory services to build the best-in-class gerontechnology offerings. She's a successfully self-taught VR filmmaker, and a design expert in IoT and wearable biotechnology, and has contributed to the design of caregiving applications available on Amazon's Alexa.
