Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
My background encompasses psychology, sociology, counseling, and interdisciplinary behavioral science, research and practice, as well as associate and adjunct faculty professor experiences.

I have also worked with interdisciplinary research/clinical teams in a variety of educational and healthcare settings and disseminated best practice evidence that is designed to improve community healthcare practices, and patient’s physical, psychological, and psychosocial outcomes.

Personally, a head-on collision due to a drunk and drugged driver and the related years of recovery and rehabilitation was an initial impetus to help others negotiate the arduous medical/healthcare process. I have assisted and supported clients, family members and/or friends navigate the healthcare system and recovery process.
