How I Can Help
I advocate for patients and families to help them get the best care possible, are kept informed of their healthcare options, and that their needs and preferences are communicated to doctors, nurses, case managers, social workers, hospital administrators, and anyone involved with their care. Hospitals and clinics strive to provide excellent care, and I help them achieve and maintain that standard by requiring excellence in every aspect of care management, continuity of care, two-way-communication, and accountability.

Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I started out as a volunteer in the patient advocate's office at my local hospital in central New Jersey, and found the work so compelling that I couldn't see myself ever doing anything else and when the opportunity arose I jumped at the chance to join the patient advocate team full-time. For me (and my fellow advocates), it's not a job - it's a calling.
