I have worked 27 years in Healthcare. My experience through radiology helped me work with patients and their families throughout the hospital. I then focused in Orthopedics and Spine Specialties. After several years in managing a Spine Specialties Clinic, I found my passion in assisting patients and their families with the difficulties of managing recovery from spinal disease and injury. This truly impacts every aspect of the life of the patient and family. I was able to advise them in managing work, treatment options and encourage them to work towards a better quality of life. This more severely impacts that of our aging community with decreased ambulation and chronic pain. Working with family and care givers to optimize comfort and restoring functionality brings me joy.
I spend a lot of time with my children, grandchild and family. I love to camp, kayak, musicals and just catching up over dinner with friends and family. Exploring new cities, nature hikes and great food is my idea of a fun day. I spent most of my young and adult life playing volleyball and still enjoy a good game. My educational focus was Health Sciences and Health Administration Training. This was carried out throughout my career in healthcare from diagnostics to managing a spine specialty care clinic.
My background in healthcare has given me great insight to the experiences of our patients and customers. I assisted with trauma, surgery, diagnostics, recovery and the more acute care in a hospital setting. I then migrated to the outpatient setting where meeting the needs of our patients and families was my most concentrated focus. My personal experience with my parents needs as they have aged has sparked a passion within me to assist families with these life changing events. My father’s health decline over his last 2 years impacted my family and I greatly. I was able to assist he and my family through the difficult transitions from multiple open-heart surgeries, recovery and rehab. Ultimately getting him in a comfortable place where he was well attended with advanced care was helpful as his cancer progressed. I understand through both professional and personal experience how sudden or chronic illness can affect the family unit and how powerful having someone help encourage you with the tough decisions can impact you. Finding the right help in a timely manner is imperative. I want to be that person to help be the calm in the storm.
