Battling Medical Chaos and Exhaustion?

Are you suffering medical exhaustion or overwhelm for you or someone you love?

Hi! I'm Amy, your Medical Navigator

Battling Medical Chaos and Exhaustion?

Are you suffering medical

exhaustion or overwhelm for you or

someone you love?

I help families who are in medically

complicated situations find the best care.

It’s not your fault!

AND there are steps you can take to

improve your situation

Feeling lost in the healthcare maze?

It’s not your fault!

Conventional parenting tools can fall short in the medical realm. You could not have been prepared for the news you’ve received.

Stand Tall. If you are blaming yourself, please don’t.

We are all ill-equipped at the beginning. So many of us have gone through this feeling, the task now is to get better equipped with each passing day. And better connected to others who can relate and can walk alongside.

Advocate Angel is here to guide you.

strategies to get what you need (that you didn’t even

know existed) from the medical system.

Testimonials

Hear from those

who have walked

this path before you

I first met Amy back in early 2004, when I was a new nurse and she was a new medical mom...

Seeing Amy at work advocating for and caring for her daughter, was very inspiring to me. It was a big part of what made me want to foster medically fragile kids. I saw her fight for her daughter, and I wanted to be a part of that fight too. Back in 2004, there were not many medically fragile children living at home, so Amy was one of the parents that blazed the trail for all of us who came after her.

Her experience, advocacy, compassion, dedication, diligence, organization, and skill at navigating our complex medical systems, will be of immeasurable benefit to anyone who is lucky enough to have her as a part of their team.

Amy and I both have children affected by the same rare medical condition in which we have fought alongside to make things easier for the next family in the same situation.

Amy has been recruited by top focused medical teams in our rare community because of her personal expertise. Through her work and collaboration, she has gone on to help launch medical research that is relevant to parents of children who are struggling to navigate their way through the medical system. It's incredibly important to have others ahead of you on the journey you travel, a special someone who can be there to shine a light on a rare cause and help guide the next steps for someone else. . .

Amy is an invaluable team leader who makes a difference by truly changing lives!

Start with a free consultation. I want to understand your specific story so we can tailor a custom plan. You may choose to use my services through many stages of care, or just to get your feet on the path. Decide as you go.

Tools to Bring Clarity
