What is a Healthcare Advocate?

We are trained professionals, from various disciplines, that have a common goal to help people navigate the complex and, at times, overwhelming healthcare system. Each healthcare advocate uses their personal and professional experiences and education to support clients with medical and other healthcare needs.


It is my personal goal, as a healthcare advocate, to ensure my clients, from diverse backgrounds, understand their treatment options and feel comfortable with their healthcare decisions. My services are mostly focused around medical advocacy, care coordination, and advance care planning, but as my work with clients expands so do my services. I am client-centered, putting the greatest emphasis on care when it comes to being a healthcare advocate. I truly believe in an individual's right to personalized care to meet their unique needs.
