I am dedicated to patient advocacy and will strive to leave no stone uncovered. I am passionate about supported decision-making: supporting clients to make their best, informed healthcare decisions.

When you or a loved one faces an illness or a troubling medical question, navigating the healthcare system can be a significant challenge.  This is especially true during the COVID 19 public health crisis.  From understanding a diagnosis to finding the most appropriate provider, from untangling complicated medical information to choosing a treatment option, a healthcare advocate may be able to help you.  With over thirty years of professional and personal experience addressing these kinds of questions, I know how to navigate the medical system. I can assist you and your family in making your own decisions about how to manage your medical issues.

I am a registered nurse with master’s degrees in public health and bioethics.  I have directed health clinics housed in major hospitals, enabled patients to access the health care they need, and – perhaps most importantly – helped friends and family members manage life threatening illnesses.  I know how it feels to face a distressing health problem.

Please e-mail me at PersonalizedHealthcareAdvocacy@gmail.com or call me at 914 907-0444 if you’re interested in learning more about how we can work together.
