Prism does not provide clinical care. Rather, Advocacy provides a foundation of researched knowledge, identification of best options, and coordination and scheduling of the multi-focal, complex puzzle that is healthcare in this country today, along with personal support and guidance.

We have found, from years of experience, that an educated healthcare consumer, given guidance and support, will make sound decisions for themselves and their loved ones, better utilize the healthcare system they are a part of, by gaining the best access to the best care at the best cost.

Let us take the burden of research and coordination from you!

Our goal is to provide that education and guidance and make sure every Prism client is cared for to the best of our professional abilities.

Important Information About Me
  • My geographical area of practice is National
Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I’ve seen the US healthcare system work successfully for patients and their families countless times throughout more than 35 years as a registered nurse, first responder and health educator. I’ve also seen it fail, far too many times.

Where do you start? Which specialists do you consult? What will insurance cover? What does the medical jargon mean, and what are the next steps in terms of seeking treatment, paying bills and making sense of it all?

I saw firsthand how difficult these choices can be when I was responding as an EMT during midnight ambulance calls, and holding patient’s hands as they discussed end of life plans with their families as a visiting hospice nurse. As a trauma nurse in an emergency room, I watched individuals and families try to pick up the pieces and make huge decisions in the wake of tragic accidents and unexpected diagnoses. I founded Prism Health Advocates because I believe that every person and every family deserves the best access to resources, information, and advice necessary in making sound medical decisions. I also want you to know that you are not alone and that you have an experienced, compassionate team by your side.
