Knowledge and Experience
“I have spent over 30 years working in healthcare.”
My career as a registered nurse and physician assistant has provided me with an insider’s view of how the healthcare system works. I have an expertise in primary care, working with patients along all walks of life. Unfortunately, the healthcare system has drastically changed over the last 30 years, often failing the patients it was meant to serve.
My work as an Independent Health Advocate grew out of a need to help patients get the care they deserve and to also alleviate the stress and anxiety this often places on the family. In the last 10 years, I have spent time caring for my aging parents and encountered a system that is difficult to navigate for the typical non-medical person. During that time, I learned ways to help my parents and others get the care they needed. For those patients or families who do not have a strong medical background or a “medical person” in the family, the task of understanding your condition and getting quality care is even more of a challenge.
