Patient Advocate Nurse

About

Passion. Experience. Diligence.

History

After 30 years of pediatric nursing in a hospital, Lisa wasn't finished being a nurse and wanted to continue to share her knowledge and experience in a different setting. In her many years of experience, she kept hearing from families, friends, and patients about how difficult it was to navigate medical care. After hearing continued stories about lack of information, mistakes, needing help through day to day treatment, and lack of guidance regarding major medical decisions, Lisa decided to dedicate her expertise and knowledge to helping patients and their families navigate the difficult hospital and medical care systems.

Patient Advocate Nurse Denver was created in January of 2017 and looks forward to servicing both pediatric and adult patients and their caretakers in need of guidance through difficult decisions and various medical situations.
