About My Services:

  • Type(s) of Advocacy: Administrative, End of Life, Health Management, Medical / Navigational, Older Adult Services
  • Years of Experience: 15 years

I’ve worked in healthcare for more than 15 years in several roles. Prior to becoming a physician assistant I set on a path to gain experience working as a nurse’s aid on a stroke unit and a medical assistant in a pediatric clinic. I’ve seen several sides of medicine from hands on patient care in hospitals and assisted living units to evaluating and treating patients as a provider in a clinic, operating room and inpatient setting. My passion to being a healthcare advocate comes in the form of witnessing and experiencing the volume demand of healthcare providers these days. Most providers are frustrated at the little time they have with patients to assist them with healthcare literacy and navigation. It is my intention to fill the gaps to create a successful working relationship between patients and their healthcare.
