After decades of working as a reporter and editor in the business press, I decided to use my journalistic talents for a worthy cause. I began volunteering on the HelpLine of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, offering callers information, resources and support. It was there that I learned about patient advocacy and saw the need for it.
The healthcare world is familiar to me, as my late father was a physician, and my two brothers and numerous other family members also are doctors. My father left an example to his children and grandchildren of quality, compassionate care. Because my husband and I are not physicians, I see the healthcare system from the patient side as well. I can relate to the questions and concerns of my clients.
My areas of focus are geriatric care and mental health. I put my heart into helping clients attain the best possible outcomes, reach their health goals, respect their priorities and values, and maintain quality of life.
