In her own words . . .

I worked my way through law school as a coronary care nurse and also worked in the hospital’s IT department as an Informatics Nurse implementing clinical information systems. While I now deal with the operational and legal side of healthcare, I understand the practicalities and realities that health care providers face. I try to approach regulatory and compliance requirements in as practical a manner as possible. I love working with health care providers and the businesses that support health care and I genuinely care about my clients. I get great satisfaction from helping my clients to be successful and creative while still being compliant with the health care regulations.
