Founder & Patient Advocate
As the founder and patient advocate of Clarity Patient Advocates, my mission is to help patients in the Greater Atlanta Area to achieve the best healthcare possible by ensuring access to quality resources, providing information that empowers informed care, and easing the emotional, financial, and logistical burden of navigating the often complex and confusing healthcare system. Having a health advocate allows patients and their families to focus on what is important and make informed choices.
I have uniquely experienced healthcare from three sides – as a nursing professional with experience in health education and patient experience, as a caretaker, and as a patient. This perspective allows me to empathize with my clients while also having a thorough understanding of the healthcare system. Along with several years of clinical and administrative healthcare experience as a nurse, I have had to navigate my own healthcare journey as a breast cancer patient and have helped many others along their journeys as well. My career in patient advocacy was born from the desire to help others have quality healthcare experiences where they feel empowered to guide their own journeys.
I had stage-4 lung cancer. I was terrified. Claire was my lifeline...she went with me to appointments and took notes when I was too overwhelmed to comprehend, or remember, what the doctor said. Along the way, she made me feel stronger, braver...in a way no one else could. We laughed together and we cried together. "

Cancer is a very bumpy road and involves a lot of tough decision making. Having Claire involved in my care greatly lowered our stress and gave us additional confidence in our decisions. I am tremendously grateful for her help and would highly encourage anyone facing their own or a family's cancer diagnosis to enlist her support."
When I received my breast cancer diagnosis I was overwhelmed with information and decisions to be made. Claire was a wealth of knowledge, support, and an advocate; from attending appointments to talking through all of my options. Everyone should have this type of support in their own personal journey, as the emotional aspect can be as great or greater than the physical side."
