In today’s health care, patients need an on-call advocate

-Akron Beacon Journal, 10/22/18

I was a successful health care lobbyist and grant writer before I lost my job from my law firm. Rather than let it devastate me, I embraced the sense of relief I was experiencing and took it as an opportunity to do something else with my life (which I had been seriously considering for years).

I did start a diligent (half-time) job search, while taking a brief sabbatical to work on some start-up ideas and side projects I was interested in pursuing. However, this “reset” time was cut short by unexpected and significant illness and health issues for both of my parents, who were reasonably young. Almost overnight, I found myself in the position of being a health care “navigator,” helping them through the byzantine and extraordinarily complex U.S. health care system.
