Thanks to everyone at Nerd Wallet for their interest in my work and spreading the important news every healthcare consumer should know in today’s climate of spiraling medical costs.
If you suddenly received a serious health diagnosis, how prepared are you and your loved ones to cope with the challenge? Are all matters concerning your Last Will and Testament and other legal documents in order? How can you be certain the medical opinion you receive is accurate? Do you know where to search for a second one? While you may not be wealthy, do you understand what the future financial cost to your beneficiaries will be in the event your home is not held in a living trust? What will your health insurance cover? How can you successfully appeal an insurance denial for reasonable coverage? Who will protect you if you’re told it’s time to be discharged from the hospital but it really isn’t?
SOUL SHERPA® possesses tremendous experience — 30 years — protecting its clients along their medical and personal life care paths. The mission of SOUL SHERPA® is to keep its clients safe, solvent, and educated during whatever medical and aging challenges lie in the future.
A Sherpa is a Tibetan person adept in mountain climbing and is acclimated to high altitudes. Often secured as a guide by other less experienced mountaineers to ensure safe passage en route to a high summit (Mount Everest, for example) a Sherpa usually resides on the high southern slopes of the Himalayas. A Soul Sherpa is an individual with expertise in advising others how to effectively organize and manage their personal business affairs as they or their loved ones age. These areas incorporate (but are not limited to) medical, legal, financial, insurance and emotional matters. A Soul Sherpa possesses the knowledge and compassion to understand the significance and privilege of successfully accompanying a client along this extraordinary journey.

I serve primarily as an experienced patient healthcare and legal life care advocate and educator who is available 24/7. In business since 1990, I have witnessed many changes to our healthcare system and have insight into new ones that await each of us. Seniors are not the only people who are being affected; it’s everyone at every age, especially as our country embarks upon the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. SOUL SHERPA® views every life — regardless of age, health, or financial status — as priceless. SOUL SHERPA® offers unique, customized, and confidential patient advocacy, legal life care services, and education aiding in successfully addressing the challenges of navigating medical treatment and recovery in today’s rapidly changing healthcare landscape, whether one’s needs are physical, emotional, or both. The company works with clients in a variety of settings (homes, offices, hospitals, doctors’ offices, care facilities) in various ways (active presence at medical appointments, at hospitals, at rehabilitation facilities, at skilled nursing facilities, at private homes, teaching in community centers and in corporations.) SOUL SHERPA® always travels to its clients.
