Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
In 2005, three of my maternal aunts were diagnosed with terminal breast cancer at the same time. Compelled to assist my aunts with fighting this disease, I became their Patient Advocate, assisting each aunt with all aspects of their healthcare needs.
From accompanying them to doctors’ appointments, getting them essential medical equipment, coordinating home healthcare, and other tasks that required me to utilize my clinical expertise of the healthcare system; I was able to ensure all of their medical needs were met on a daily basis.

But my ultimate lesson came from my own experience at the Veterans Affairs hospital in 2019 that required me to navigate the Veteran Administration's cumbersome healthcare system.
During that time, I experienced firsthand what I’m sure many veterans face daily just trying to get the care that they earned and so desperately need. I knew it was time for me to step out on faith to help others achieve whole-health and well being
