How I Can Help
I provide healthcare navigation assistance, coordination of care, research, and assistance with the identification of appropriate providers/referrals. Almost all of us have walked out of an appointment realizing we forgot to ask something. I work with you to ensure you get the best use of the time with your provider by creating a list of needs and questions during pre- and post-appointment preparation and review. I can attend and offer notetaking to clients for appointments and accommodation coordination.
Medical bills can be overwhelming and confusing. I help with organizing, tracking, negotiating and advocating for coverage as well as resolving billing errors.
I am available to assist with organizing and helping to ensure you have proper storage for medicines and medical supplies and scheduling orders.
I can also support caregivers through encouragement, connection to resources, and coordination of support services.
I specialize in pain and complex/chronic health conditions and can help educate clients on eastern/ alternative and complementary practices including the evidence behind each practice to ensure clients can make informed decisions.
Our mental patterns and habits can have significant effects on our physical condition and pain status. I can provide education, resources, and coaching to help clients more effectively manage their pain and stress.

Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I began my journey to patient advocacy young in life as a person with epilepsy. My health challenges were initially what led me to pursue an education in Eastern Healing and Pain Management. During my education and time in direct patient care, I realized much of my time was spent educating and advocating for my patients and started my movement towards public health and advocacy.
I started my career in higher education in 2010 and soon dovetailed my work in higher education with grant-funded community health program implementation. Through this work, I gained extensive knowledge and invaluable skills and abilities. I can take difficult medical and insurance terminology and procedures and explain them in ways that make sense even to the most unfamiliar of souls. I became intimately well-versed in the challenges patients with chronic health disorders face when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease in 2015.
I have experience coordinating care and communication among various providers and specialties, researching diagnosis and treatment options (including alternative treatments) as well as reviewing, negotiating, and adjusting medical bills, and advocating for insurance coverage.
I prioritize the safety and education of each client, partnering with them to elevate their voice and achieve the personalized health care they need. The medical and insurance industry has had a long history of being hard to navigate. The pandemic furthered these challenges and brought more strain to an already overwhelmed system. It forced change that neither the system nor the patients were completely ready for further highlighting the need for patient advocacy. My goal is to not only light the way but also remove the barriers patients face as they try to navigate these unwieldy systems.
I partner with my clients and their loved ones to foster relationships built on trust and a commitment to long-term well-being. I work with them to create a plan of care tailored to each person’s circumstances and needs. I collaborate with clients and their providers to ensure care is coordinated across the various providers, health systems, and care settings.
My goal is to fill the gaps between the unmet needs of the patient and the service from the healthcare system by first and foremost, ensuring the patient’s safety. I am passionate about empowering and educating my patients to feel confident in making informed healthcare decisions. I serve as a trusted person to compassionately manage and guide them through the system to get the care they need and deserve. I thoroughly enjoy assisting patients resolve their issues and take pride in serving as a support and resource for them long-term.
