I have a lot in common with my clients. I too was a family caregiver, twice in my life. First for my uncle and then again for my father. I know first-hand how difficult and stressful the role of a caregiver can be. My goal is to make caregiving easier for my clients, than it was for me.
My very first client once told me that knowing who to go to and when is a strong suit of mine. I have worked with her and her mother multiple times since launching my practice. She honored me with the greatest compliment I think a care manager can receive from a client. She said that a major benefit of working with me is that she has been able to count on my support over the long healthcare journey. My goal is to make caregiving easier for my clients.
I have been at the forefront of the public health insurance industry since 1996, and serve as an independent Director on the Fidelis Care-NY, Centene Board of Directors. While part of an executive leadership team at another large NYC based public health insurance company, I led the health plan’s Medicaid, HARP and Child Health Plus lines of business. I’ve previously served as Senior Vice President of government relations and healthcare policy, where I advocated for member needs and healthcare reform for the poor in Washington, DC and Albany, NY. I have also held board leadership roles with YouthBridge-NY, NYC Mission Society and the Harlem Business Alliance.
I currently serve as Chair of the Board of Directors for the NY Covenant Community Development Corporation in New Rochelle, NY. I am also a key member of numerous organizations that serve the interests of the elderly including Orion Resource Group, Central Westchester Geriatric Committee and I serve on the Diversity Task Force of the Aging Life Care Association (ALCA).
I look forward to using my experience, resourcefulness and professionally honed advocacy and problem solving skills, to help make caregiving easier for you too.
