How I Can Help
By providing complex care management for very ill patients with complicated medical issues. I love people and feel it is my purpose in life to be a voice for those without a voice, leveraging my extensive clinical nursing expertise to help people outside and inside the hospital setting.

Why I Became a Professional Healthcare Advocate
A personal family crisis showed me how many other families struggle when they are suddenly thrown into the fast paced world of modern healthcare. As a nurse, I saw the causes of medical error from inside the system and knew I could do something about it from outside. My number one reason for becoming an advocate is to use my knowledge and experience to help prevent medical errors from occurring in the first place.
