Jeanmarie is adept at finding options and solutions to help you navigate any health challenge, chronic illness or diagnosis.
I am a Board Certified Patient Advocate. I am passionate about helping people develop greater agency over their health and healthcare experience through a process that both relieves and empowers them. Having had an aggressive form of cancer myself, I know first hand the emotional, physical and financial burdens of a serious illness. I know the frustration of dealing with our complex healthcare system when an illness turns your life upside down. I have also been caregiver to my mother who had non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and my step-mother who had dementia and pancreatic cancer. These personal experiences give an added dimension to my professional experience as a patient advocate. I specialize in individualized patient education, care coordination and health coaching for people with a spectrum of health challenges. From lifestyle changes like improving your health through diet, exercise and stress reduction; to coordinating complex medical treatments, navigating surgery and cancer recovery or managing a chronic illness. I support people by helping them implement a care plan we develop together through a process that is compassionate, informative, motivating and garners results.
