Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I'm Rachel Westlake, the heart behind Rachel Westlake Consulting. My own experience as a two-time cancer survivor and my professional role as a board-certified health care advocate for young adults with cancer and chronic illness have shaped my unique approach to health care.

My services support health care professionals, patient groups, and institutions toward creating a more compassionate and effective healthcare system. My approach is based on partnership and customized strategies that address the diverse needs of the health care community.

With experience in coalition leadership, startup strategy, and research, I bring a balanced perspective to each client project. I aim to create meaningful connections between health care professionals, industry stakeholders, and patients.

Whether facilitating workshops, strategy sessions, presentations, and patient panels, I focus on delivering insights that contribute to patient-centric care. This commitment is strengthened by ongoing patient interactions, ensuring that services reflect real and varied patient experiences.

My vision is a healthcare system where patient voices are integral, harmonizing with industry insights to guide transformation and cultivate an environment where every individual’s health experience is valued and respected. At Rachel Westlake Consulting, my approach is about thoughtfully shaping the future of health care, fostering agency in patients and providing education and support to health care professionals.
