Through encouragement and education I provide people with chronic illness the assistance they need to achieve a better quality of life by working with care practitioners in traditional and non-traditional professions. As a chronic pain sufferer for 18 years, I understand first hand what chronic pain and illness client's experience from the medical field, from their family, and from society as a whole.
I have the ability to assist clients from other states remotely and safely using private video conferences.

As a chronic pain sufferer since 2002, I have tried over 26 different therapies and treatments to gain a better quality of life. I was on narcotics for long term and endured painful treatments for nine years with a Pain Clinic. After spending many years with low quality of life, I suffered through narcotic withdrawal and found other ways of treating pain. I know that everyone's pain journey is different and understand that narcotic treatment is effective for many patients. I started a chronic pain support group in my own community to provide the support that clients often don't get from families and friends.
I am very passionate about initiating change on how chronic pain patients are treated in the medical system. With my own experiences, I am a strong advocate for clients, knowing how they may be treated and cast aside by some practitioners. Through educating our community, families, and medical system about chronic illness and it's affects on the patient, I envision a system that effectively treats clients and their families with compassion and relief of pain which they deserve.
