How I Can Help
As a Board Certified Patient Advocate I am dedicated to helping patients and their families or legal representatives navigate a personal path for their care and the cost of their care in our fragmented and complicated healthcare system.

Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I began patient advocacy over twenty years ago while assisting a family member navigate through the decision making process when diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Since a young age I was always drawn to senior citizens and volunteered summers at a local nursing home. Elder care has been a passion of mine since that time. My patient advocacy evolved over time and was most important when my father was diagnosed with ALS. It equipped me to help him in making the tough decisions of his end of life care.
