About Allison

I was born to care for others, and knowing I am being helpful is where my joy comes from. I took care of my grandfather when he was sick with cardiovascular and dementia issues from age 11 until he passed away when I was 13. I went to LPN school right out of high school and then went right back to school to further my nursing degree to RN. I started working in the Emergency Room of a state hospital when I was 17 and have been in health care since. Honestly, I am disenchanted and have felt the healthcare system has been broken for the past several years and I am ready to get back to the reason I went into it to begin with. I want to help people, I want a direct relationship with the actual patient/person/client and to do what I can to empower them, assist them, alleviate any discomfort, assist with any need or difficulty, assess to determine what I can do to make your life easier, better, take on any unnecessary burdens. I want to get back to the basics and that is why this type of nursing is what I am seeking. Let me know what you are seeking and we will make it happen. I really look forward to meeting you and to caregiving.

Experience & Education

Nurse Ally, Decision Support Specialist

Jun 2014 - Apr 2019
Consumers Medical Resource
I have been a nurse for almost 20 years and have worked in Health care since the age of 17. I have experience in ER, Home Health care, Cardiovascular disease, Diabetes, CHF, COPD, Alzheimers, Oncology, Telehealth and Research nursing with an emphasis on Diabetes research. For the past 5 years my focus has been on patient education and empowering people with the gift of knowledge so they can make well informed decisions regarding their own care. It's so important to get second opinions, see the best qualified physicians, ask the right questions to get the necessary information, know all of their treatment options and possible outcomes and take the power back- that's where we are in healthcare today. You are your own best health advocate. I am here to help you on that journey as well as assist in any homecare needs. I am happy to provide needed transportation, be with you(if you would like) at your medical visits, ask questions, explain visit to family members. I will be your advocate and assist you in whatever your health care needs are. I am able to stay overnight if needed. My schedule is very flexible and I just want to be helpful. I am super easy going, easy to talk to or not talk to, willing and able to do whatever makes you more comfortable and happy. I am not the best cook but if you have a sense of humor then we can try that as well. I look forward to being there for whatever you need.
