I am passionate about educating, enlightening, and encouraging patients and family members to advocate for their best health care, where ever they may be on their health journey. 


I have given talks to caregivers, discussing when one might consider palliative care and when one might consider hospice support.  I have given talks to healthcare professionals, providing pointers on how they might discuss prognosis or bring up hospice support in a straightforward, gentle way.  

I can speak on a number of topics, such as

(for patients or care partners)

What to consider when making big medical decisions 

What to consider when feeling overwhelmed with living with serious illness

What to consider when communicating with doctors

(for patients, care partners, or healthcare professionals) 

What palliative care can look like and when it could be helpful

What hospice support can look like and when it could be helpful

Which advance directives are the most effective in real life scenarios
