Health Care Advisor
nanLang.

I have been a nurse in the Intensive Care Unit for more than 30 years, developing a solid knowledge of and ability to work within the U.S. healthcare system. I have experience with pediatric and adult patients both, in various medical areas such as cardiac care, neurology, surgery, and trauma. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.

From my 30 years experience as a nurse, I have many areas of strength including partnership building, strategic planning, conflict resolution; planning, coordination, and management of patients with complex diagnoses and multi-system failures. Most important as a Health Care Advocate, I am a strong patient and family advocate, able to work collaboratively with medical team and function as a resource for team members and family members. I also have the ability to work with the system to manage patient expectations and to move the patient toward achievable goals.

I learned the importance of my skills as an advisor/ advocate when I took on this role when my mom battled cancer. During the 7 years she fought this disease, I became her health care advocate. Even though my mom was a pharmacist and was more than able to understand her disease and her treatment options, I was the one who discussed all the heath issues with her and her doctor. I became a part of the “team” as do most family members.

This is when I saw the importance of a health care advisor and I knew that this was my new passion. My mission is to provide education, resources, and tools to my clients so they can make educated, informed decisions about their healthcare.

!My goal is to make sure you have the “care” you need in your Health Care Advocate!
