Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I have worked solely in healthcare since the mid 1990's and I understand how complex and overwhelming it can be for people who do not have a medical background. The healthcare system is ever more so complex, and as a personal advocate I help clients more directly and have a better impact. I understand that sometimes people don't necessarily want MORE tests or MORE pills to take, but a better understanding of their illness and what to expect, and I help provide that for people.
