Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
For 30 years, Ann worked closely with administrators, doctors, nurses, hospitals, and patients. Her career spanned sales, marketing, and physician/clinician and patient education. She worked with staff in every area of the hospital. Her extensive experience interfacing with the healthcare industry and patients allows her to quickly establish rapport with physicians and clinicians. Ann is well versed regarding medical conditions, test results, and treatment options. She will calmly, compassionately, and accurately translate every option to the patient or their decision-maker so the patient's voice will be heard. Most importantly, this background allows her to ask the right questions, so you, as a patient, get the right answers and care.

Since Ann was a young child, she has been fascinated with all things scientific and medical. In high school, her gift was recognized early and she was invited to spend every Monday at a local Maryland hospital observing surgeries, spending time in the emergency department, and interacting with doctors and patients before she graduated a year early from high school.

In 2017 Ann retired from GE Healthcare in Seattle and moved to North Carolina to be closer to her elderly parents and family. She was eager to fulfill her dream of helping patients and their loved ones more directly through patient advocacy. Her passion and authenticity make her a valuable ally in addressing your healthcare needs.
