As a VA Accredited Claims Agent (Only Geriatric Care Manager in CA with VA accreditation) with nearly 14 years of submitting applications and with a 100% approval track record, I assist with all aspects of processing VA claims. I’m authorized to litigate claims on behalf of veterans who have been wrongfully denied a benefit. As a wartime veteran who retired in 1992 from the Air Force, I know firsthand the criticality of processing VA claims promptly and getting benefits to our service men and women as quickly as possible.
Known by many as The Elder Care Navigator, I’m a Certified Care Manager trained to assist elders and their families on senior care issues. I understand the social and emotional impact that elder care has on a family. The stress can wreak havoc in the home. I do everything possible to find solutions to prevent this or to stop it from continuing. My knowledge and experience with senior placement ensures elders obtain quality care and transitional preparation for their future.
After serving my country in the Air Force, my career took various twists and turns. Through it all, I never lost sight of the need for veteran assistance in securing service-earned benefits. As I grew professionally, my awareness of the needs of the aging population came into focus. Combining my passion for helping veterans and my desire to serve seniors, I founded Advanced Wellness.
Whether I’m navigating government bureaucracy on behalf of a veterans or widows of war time veterans in need or locating a desired living facility for a senior, I don’t give up until success is achieved. My professional and community involvement includes:
