Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
Coming from a family of healthcare providers I have always been intrigued with medicine.

After college I chose to apply my business skills within the healthcare industry. I spent 24-years on the front lines of healthcare delivery with a focus in Oncology (the study of cancer). My career 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 my father was diagnosed with cancer and throughout that intense period of our 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 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 in corporate healthcare, I have interacted with many oncology teams and networks. My extensive oncology background enables me to help you fully understand your diagnosis and treatment options. I am skilled at researching clinical trials and can help you identify relevant options and my personal experience navigating my own family's 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, not a specific medical institution. I am 100% committed to your needs and goals and will help you uncover what you don't know and find options that apply to your unique situation.
