How I Can Help
With nearly 20 years of care management experience, I am well-versed in the navigation of the long-term care and healthcare systems as an advocate for clients. Most of our clients are overwhelmed from seeing multiple doctors, having many medications to manage, and being frequent visitors to the ER or doctor’s office and would like to feel that their healthcare is being better managed.
Important Information About Me

  • I am insured
  • My geographical area of practice is Charlotte Metro area
Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
Working with older adults has inspired me to be a better advocate because I feel they are often ignored or overlooked in our healthcare system. Our system also isn’t designed to be a positive experience for anyone with cognitive impairment and this simply must change in the future. Advocating for yourself can be exhausting and we owe it to the older adults in our society to do better and be better when it comes to listening to their needs.
