Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
CEO and Founder, Nicole Christensen, is a Board Certified Patient Advocate and native Long Islander. She founded Care Answered in 2014 and has over 20 years experience in advocacy for older adults. Ms. Christensen began her focus on the care and advocacy in her formative years. Christensen earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Baruch College and a Master of Science degree in Urban Affairs from Hunter College. Her career includes serving as Advocacy Director at Emmaus Service for the Aging in Washington DC; Advocacy Consultant for LiveOn NY; and Director of Food Access at FoodChange, spearheading the focused outreach and advocacy campaign. As the Vice President of Programs and Agency Relations at Island Harvest, she developed and launched their first senior citizen mobile outreach and advocacy program.
In addition to her professional experience, Christensen has had the personal challenge of securing the best possible care for her own family and thus truly understands how overwhelming and daunting it can seem. Care Answered was developed as a solution; advocating for one’s best care and giving caregivers peace of mind.
