There are many types of advocacy and our work together can focus on one or multiple areas of need: medical navigation, physician communication, managing logistics, researching treatment options, or whatever else it is that will ease your journey.
Areas of special interest include neurology (concussion, brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury), medically complex cases (ventilator-dependent, wounds, kidney and cardiac disease, antibiotic-resistant infections, cancer), multi-trauma (fractures and internal injuries), hip and knee replacements, autoimmune disorders, and geriatrics - especially balance and fall prevention.

The joy of connecting with patients and their families is something to treasure. I enjoy teaching them what they need to know to feel more comfortable with their health care. Because PT's are blessed to spend a lot of one-on-one time with their patients, there's ample time for conversation and coaching. What does this diagnosis really mean (in English, please!)? What role do all these people play? Why do I need three different doctors? What’s the difference between these different places they’re suggesting I discharge to? Do I really need to have that test? It became my goal that my patients feel empowered in their knowledge of their health and emboldened to be the key decision maker in their care.
