Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I left for college to pursue a medical degree. While studying, I discovered that I had a much higher aptitude for business and graduated with a marketing degree. But my love for medicine never faded.

I chose to apply my business skills within the healthcare industry and for 24-years my skills kept me on the front lines of healthcare delivery where I focused on Oncology (the study of cancer). My career has provided an in-depth knowledge of cancer care—through rigorous disease state training coupled with professional experiences relating to clinical treatment, research, patient advocacy and assistance.

In 2015, cancer came to my family. My father was diagnosed and throughout that intense period of our personal cancer journey I frequently thought, “ how do people without some knowledge of the medical system and specifically oncology, manage the confusion of such a disruptive diagnosis?”

I quickly recognized the need and tremendous opportunity to help people facing cancer. I knew that I wanted to act as their champion when they most need one, especially as healthcare becomes more confusing and costly. I left my corporate job and founded Cancer Champions.

Additional Skills
In my 24 years of corporate work I have interacted with a wide variety of oncology teams and networks. My extensive oncology background means I can translate medical terminology helping you fully understand your diagnosis and treatment options. I am skilled at researching clinical trials and can help you identify options and my personal experience managing loved ones' cancer journeys has given me empathy for the emotional toll a cancer diagnosis has on you and your family.

As your private consultant, I work for you and not a specific medical institution. I am 100% committed to your needs and goals and I will help you uncover what you don't know and find options that apply to your specific situation.
