I went into nursing as a second career to help people in a direct way. My vision was to ultimately combine my marketing and communication skills with my nursing experience to be a voice for change in the health care system. I am passionate about removing barriers to health care, improving access, and abolishing inequities.
My years working as an RN in the hospital setting and working in the health insurance industry as a chronic disease manager, health coach and case manager gave me insight as to how vulnerable patients can be, and how overwhelming and inhospitable the health care system is just when you need it. It became apparent to me that the role of patient advocate as a care navigator, champion, and health coach is vital in facilitating positive health outcomes. So many factors contribute to physical health, with socio-economic well being and mental health both having a tremendous impact. All elements of health must be considered in the delivery of health care.
Eventually, my vision and my experience coalesced into Breakaway Health Solutions. Starting my own advocacy and health coaching business gave me the autonomy to represent my clients without any conflicts of interest, and the flexibility to meet their individual needs. It has given me the ability to make a direct impact while exercising my passion for making health care accessible to all. I am able to work with my clients to determine what is important to them, and I can provide the guidance and coaching they need to achieve their specific health goals in a way that is both patient-centered and patient-driven.
