Nice To Meet You!

My experience as a patient, caregiver, community educator/advocate, and expertise as a hematology-oncology nurse practitioner have motivated my work as an extraordinary independent health advocate. I have witnessed poor communications, suboptimal medical team coordination, lack of patient understanding, and other healthcare navigational issues lead to medical errors for my family, friends, and patients in the clinical setting. I spent the last 2 decades striving to become the best health advocate for myself, family, and people all over the United States and abroad.

A Bit About My Approach:

My unique approach to advocating for patients with cancer and other chronic illnesses centers around a holistic and proactive strategy. I prioritize building a deep, trust-based relationship with each client, enabling me to understand their physical, emotional, and social needs comprehensively. I also emphasize empowering clients through education, helping them become informed and active participants in their care decisions. I am compassionate, understanding, and highly communicative. Additionally, I leverage technology and data-driven insights to provide personalized support, tailoring interventions and resources to enhance the quality of life and treatment outcomes for each individual I assist. If any of these qualities fit your desired advocate, please reach out to me.

What To Expect From Our Intro Call:

During our 15-minute introductory call, you can expect a warm and empathetic conversation where we'll discuss your specific healthcare needs and challenges. I'll provide you with an overview of my role as an independent patient advocate and how I can support you throughout your healthcare journey. We'll also explore your goals and concerns, allowing me to outline a tailored plan of action that aligns with your unique circumstances. This call serves as an opportunity for us to begin building a trusting partnership focused on empowering you to make informed decisions and navigate the healthcare system effectively.
