Patient Advocacy has been a passion and a challenge that has always lined up with my overall enjoyment of people. Building personal relationships, working through treatment concerns and creating financial plans has inspired my desire to grow in all of those skills as much as I can. There’s nothing like the satisfied look on a patient face when they’ve navigated the sometimes confusing world of insurance/financing and the unknown of treatment to come out the other end with an even bigger better smile. To help calm fears, answer questions and help make treatment possible, especially in a soothing environment is rewarding to me. This all just adds to a life that is fulfilled with family, friends & traveling!
