Board Certified Private Patient Advocate


I am so happy you are here and exploring the idea of hiring a private patient advocate.

I am a Board Certified Patient Advocate working directly with patients and families to support them in navigating the maze of the current healthcare system. My goal is to support and empower you to obtain the safe, effective, and compassionate healthcare you need, want, and deserve.

I have 38 years of experience as a Cardiac Ultrasound Technologist (often known as an Echo Tech) so I especially enjoy working with heart patients. I have worked in hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices and also for a commercial ultrasound company. I currently do insurance billing for a small psychotherapy practice, so I have an understanding of how to work with Medicare, Medi-Cal, and private insurers. Having served both patients and providers gives me a broad view of the perspectives of each, which makes me a more effective mediator and “translator.”  I also have a wealth of knowledge about alternative and complimentary healthcare, such as acupuncture, massage, herbal medicine and more.

I have supported heart patients, cancer patients, stroke patients, and elders with multiple healthcare issues through their healthcare crises and ongoing healthcare needs. I have been so grateful to have been able to share my experience and expertise with them in easing their journeys through the healthcare system.

In addition to my medical healthcare background I carry a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology and I am an ordained Interfaith Minister. Not only can I help you manage the logistics of your healthcare experience, I can also help support the emotional, psychological, and spiritual aspects of your journey.

I look forward to exploring how I might be of service to you in your healthcare journey!
