Why I Became a Professional Healthcare Advocate
I started my professional career as a social worker where I witnessed the overwhelming impact a health crisis can have on patients and families. As I continued with my career, I pursued secondary degrees in Social Work and Business Administration. After I received a certificate in Nonprofit Management Strategy, I became a full-time professional healthcare advocate and I’m loving every minute of it.
