Why I Became A Professional Healthcare Advocate
My journey into advocacy started when I helped a dear friend navigate the health care world after a ALS diagnosis. I found that there was not one place to find all the help, care or answers for him. I became his advocate and the person to pull all the pieces together. I then had to do the same kind of things for my own mother as I walked with her through her health crisis to the end of her life. My passion for patient advocacy grew out of these and other experiences.
I believe that every patient can benefit from and deserves a person that is not only knowledgeable but is also there to fight just for them.
