Hello :) 

I am a nurse, mompreneur, and owner of CT HealthAdvocate. I have been helping families, patients, and companies navigate the healthcare system for over 10 years. 


I've worked in skilled nursing, assisted living, memory care, and independent living--and one thing has always remained the same: there were stressed out families, patients, nurses, resulting in unhappy people and poor-quality care.


I can empathize with millions of caregivers who are filled with fear, uncertainty, and guilt that they are simply not doing enough for their loved one and who attempted to advocate for their loved one, only to find that it was an uphill battle.

Which is why I started CT HealthAvocate- to provide caregivers like myself with the tools, autonomy, and support systems we need to successful navigate the complex healthcare system. 

When I'm not advocating for patients and their families, you can find me volunteering local senior centers, antiquing, going on retreats to my "she-area," or probing my kids for the latest slang so I can make mom jokes. I look forward to getting to know you and being a part of your loved one's care team.

Our Approach 

We listen. We take what has been done, is happening now, and your hopes for the future into careful consideration before developing a care plan tailored specifically for you. You and an advocate will collaborate on what you think is best, and you can choose to execute the plan yourself or hire us to do it for you. You'll be armed with knowledge, empowerment, and tools to help ease your fear that you're not doing enough as a caregiver--because you are both lovable and capable.


We look forward to being a part of your healthcare journey.  Get in touch.
