Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
My journey into patient advocacy began with learning to stand up for myself. Before I even hit my teenage years, I had become intimately familiar with the world of patient advocacy. Diagnosed with multiple chronic health conditions by the age of 12, my childhood was a blur of hospital visits, home recuperation, and trying to keep up at school. Through this whirlwind of diagnoses and treatments, I became acutely aware of the crucial role healthcare providers play. They're meant to be caretakers and listeners, especially when you're in pain. However, my journey was fraught with disbelief and dismissal, with my pain often waved off as imaginary. Yet, it was real, rooted deep within my nerves.

I'll never forget the young neurology resident who championed my cause, challenging a misdiagnosis by his attending, armed with nothing but facts and a fierce determination to do right by me. His advocacy was a beacon of hope and a turning point for me, illustrating the profound difference an advocate can make in a patient's life.

My foray into the healthcare workforce began in patient financial counseling in a busy emergency department, where I navigated the complex world of health insurance for patients. It was here that I truly understood the value of affordable and accessible care, managing to secure temporary insurance for those caught in financial limbo and coordinating transfers for trauma patients to minimize their expenses.

Fuelled by a passion for health law and policy, I've since moved into legislative advocacy, striving to educate lawmakers on the real-world impacts of their decisions on patient care. Advocacy, I've learned, is not just about saving lives; it's about empowerment, education, and pushing for change to better the healthcare experience for everyone involved.
