All iRNPAs have completed the nationally ranked RN Patient Advocates/University of Arizona College of Nursing Learning Intensive and are knowledgeable in all paradigms of medicine:  conventional medicine, Integrative Medicine and the Functional Medicine Chronic Care Model.  Our expertise extends to all clinical areas. Click here to read about our services: RN Patient Advocate Services 

We invite you to meet with an iRNPA for an introductory meeting.  We will ask you to tell us what is happening, what conditions are you facing.  Knowing that, we will be able to explain how we might best help – what services iRNPAs provide that would be most advantageous for you.

  My areas of interest are people with complex medical issues, cancer patients and seniors (and their children who live in another state) who need help understanding their healthcare issues. I also have a lot of experience with pediatrics and neonates and working with their families to understand the child’s healthcare issues and treatment plans.
