Supporting and caring for a chronically ill family member is one of the most difficult and demanding jobs. I know this because I was a caregiver for my daughter for several years while navigating through her illness. I was frustrated with her care and underwhelmed with the suggested treatment options.

My pharmacy background and knowledge allowed me to advocate effectively to get the care my daughter required and deserved, as well as to research other options. I realized how challenging it would be for those without a healthcare background to navigate and research all the obstacles we faced. 

Now I am dedicated to helping guide my clients through their health journey.

Managing an illness is a full-time job. Whether you are navigating an illness on your own or caring for a loved one, it is not easy to juggle this along with a job, marriage, and other responsibilities. I would love to help you or your loved one. I will prioritize you and your family with the same care and consideration as I do for mine. 

My focus will be on understanding your medical concerns, questions, and goals. 

As your patient advocate, my role is to be your dedicated ally and support system throughout your healthcare journey. I am here to listen to your concerns, advocate for your needs, and ensure that you receive the best possible care. From researching treatment options to helping you understand medical terminology, I will empower you with the knowledge and resources you need to make informed decisions about your health.

Whether it's accompanying you to appointments, organizing medical records, or facilitating communication between healthcare providers, I am committed to easing the burden and ensuring that your voice is heard every step of the way. Together, we will navigate the complexities of the healthcare system and work toward achieving your health and wellness goals.
