How I Can Help
Illness can easily overwhelm, making it difficult to think clearly. As a physician health advocate, I work closely with my clients, their doctor(s) and family as they navigate their way through the medical maze of an unexpected diagnosis, long-term illness, end of life care, or other challenging medical concerns. Finding the best specialists, understanding how to make the best use of second opinions, knowing what a diagnosis means and giving support through decision making and treatment options - all are key aspects of the role I play as a health advocate.

My approach is guided by a commitment to support clients as they navigate the healthcare system, understand and weigh different treatment options, and discover their goals and values in relation to their health and healthcare.

The process usually follows the following four steps:

1. We’ll have a complimentary call to discuss your health concerns, ways we can work together, and commitment of services.

2. Once a comprehensive health review is taken, a personal assessment plan is created, with relevant action steps that support your goals and values.

3. I can help you to better understand your diagnoses, treatment options, new and/or alternative treatments, and arrange consultations with top specialists and medical centers.

4. As your health advocate, I’ll be a part of your team. I can accompany you to clinician appointments, visit you during hospital stay(s), and see that your health values are represented.

My goal is for you to feel empowered, informed, and in control of your medical care and overall health.
Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I am a graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, where I also completed my internship in Medicine/Surgery. I took a hiatus from practicing medicine to raise my two children and care for my ailing parents. This experience showed me firsthand the demands on family and caregivers when faced with managing serious health conditions— including pancreatic cancer, Alzheimer’s dementia and heart disease.

As a physician, I bring the insight and knowledge of medicine—from defining different treatment options, to connecting and coordinating with the right specialists, to understanding complex medical evaluations.

As a parent, daughter, patient and caregiver, I understand that the ups and downs of diagnosis and treatment are challenging. It is with this combined experience that I am able to provide effective, knowledgeable, patient-centered compassionate health advocacy.

I want to work closely with you to help you define what is most important in your life as you face challenging health diagnoses, and then support you as you navigate through them.
