What Do You Do for Fun?

Yes, you concerned readers, I'm still playing my baritone saxophone. I'm taking lessons every two weeks via Skype. No travel time! I've upped my playing to 4-6 hours a week.…

As an action catalyst, I empower people traveling together toward best health (people as patients, caregivers, parents, clinicians, direct care staff, communities, and the people that support them). I wear many hats in healthcare:

  • Patient with Multiple Sclerosis
  • Care partner for several family members’ end-of-life journeys
  • Nurse for 40+ years
  • Informaticist
  • QI leader
  • Husband, Father, Opa, Musician

I specialize in patient/ caregiver/ clinician/ community relationships and the intersection between technology and the health journey.
