Having cared for my father through his years-long struggle with terminal illness, I understand how deeply personal and unique every healthcare journey can be. This inspired me to develop a highly individualized and human-centered approach to care, one that understands the whole person and supports them at every step of the way. As a highly effective and empathic communicator, I will be your voice and advisor in what is too often a noisy and overwhelming world of care providers. • Interpreting diagnoses, results, and treatment options • Ensuring quality of care in hospitals and long-term care facilities • Coordinating appointments and organizing medical documents • Post-operative recovery guidance and support • Navigating end-of-life decisions and mediating family disagreements • In-person and remote support throughout the United States
During our initial consultation, we’ll go over the medical challenges you’re facing, your personal history, and how I can help support you through what’s ahead. Together we’ll develop a personalized plan tailored to your situation. Once we're aligned, I'll actively pursue the best possible outcomes for you, and I’ll do everything I can to ensure that your wishes, values, and needs are upheld throughout the entire care journey.
