How I Can Help
I will contribute an objective, calm viewpoint to clients in the midst of healthcare chaos. I will help sort through the often overwhelming amount of information to streamline the process and plan. My goal is to help ensure that clients have the necessary information to make informed decisions surrounding their care thereby creating peace of mind. I aim to partner with patients and family members to ensure they have access to all options, receive answers to their questions and have those difficult conversations with loved ones so they can advocate effectively and not have regrets.

Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I have experienced firsthand the feeling of frustration as a result of poor communication with and between healthcare providers and the lack of forthcoming and timely information shared. I do not want others to feel the regret that I experienced over my mother's last few weeks of life. Looking back, an objective advocate could have helped us understand options and make decisions that allowed her to maintain her dignity. . Essentially, I became a patient advocate to educate and empower people so that they can regain control of their own healthcare.
