How I Can Help
I assist patients of all ages and families with all aspects of care management and care coordination. My nursing and risk management experience opened my eyes and allows me to open the door for effective engagement on behalf of my clients. I partner with individuals, families and their medical teams so that informed decisions can be made with expertise, support and peace of mind.

Why I Became a Professional Healthcare Advocate
I was a Registered Nurse for 12 years at a large urban academic medical center. During this time, I learned the importance of the multidisciplinary approach. But I also witnessed communication gaps among and between doctors, nurses, hospital staff, patients and their families. I have a passion for helping clients team with their physicians to navigate the system as quickly and effectively as possible.
