My journey started at the age of 13 for the Christmas Season. I wanted to earn my own money to buy Christmas gifts for my family.  My father asked the neighborhood pharmacist and family friend if he would allow me to work in his pharmacy. My job description included translating Christmas cards from English to Spanish. After the holiday season was over he asked if I would work part time after school and help around the pharmacy and I accepted. I was mesmerized watching the pharmacist and how he was preparing and measuring various medications.  That is when my desire to become a pharmacist all started. As time went on the pharmacist encouraged me to apply to Pharmacy School which I did and was accepted. 

After graduating from Pharmacy School I was recruited by a major Pharmaceutical company and spent the next 33 years in sales. I interacted with health care professionals in a number of different settings. Some of which included Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Clinics, and Health Care Centers.

My area of expertise was in contracting and negotiations within the hospital setting. It was very rewarding to have doctors say to me how much I was helping their patients.I knew then that helping people was what I wanted to do.  That is when I realized that Patient Advocates were very much needed and that was the career I wanted to pursue after I retired from the Pharmaceutical Industry. 

During this same time my mother became very ill and I became her care giver. It was such an eye opening experience for me the amount of work I had to do when it came to her care.  Constantly speaking with her medical team, setting up second opinions, and choosing the right facility for her care. In the end she unfortunately passed away but I was able to be her voice to get her the best medical care options that she deserved. After this experience I knew I wanted to help other people navigate through this complicated maze of paperwork, rules, regulations and laws.

After retiring from Pharmaceutical Sales I decided to pursue a career in Patient Advocacy.  I was once again faced with another challenge of becoming the care giver for my sister who was diagnosed with breast cancer. Researching and finding the best medical and surgical team was the priority. I also obtained second opinions so that we could make the best medical decisions to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Thankfully after this complicated and long process my sister is now cancer free and is doing well. 

These experiences have taught me two things, how precious life can be, and that tomorrow is not promised to anyone.


Mi experiencia  comenzo a la edad de 13 anos para la temporada de Navidad. Yo queria ganar mi propio dinero para comprar regalos de Navidad para mi familia. Mi padre le pregunto al farmaceutico del barrio y amigo de la familia si el me permitiria trabajar en su farmacia. Mi descripcion del trabajo incluia traducir las tarjetas de Navidad de ingles a espanol. Despues de la temporada de vacaciones el me pregunto si queria trabajar tiempo parcial despues de la escuela y yo acepte. Yo estaba hipnotizada viendo el farmaceutico y como preparaba y media diversos medicamentos. Es cuando empezo mi deseo de ser farmaceutica. El farmaceutico me inspiro que aplicara a la Escuela de Farmacia y fui aceptada.

Despues de graduarme de la escuela de farmacia fui contratada por una importante empresa farmaceutica y pase los siguientes 33 anos en ventas. Yo interactue con profesionales de salud en un numero de diferentes configuraciones. Algunas de las cuales incluian hospitales, asilos, clinicas y centros de atencion de salud.

Mi area de especializacion fue en contrataciones y negociaciones en el ambito hospitalario. Fui muy agradesida que los medicos me decian cuanto estaba ayudando a sus pacientes. Supe entonces que ayudar a la gente era lo que queria hacer. Es cuando me di de cuenta que Asistente de Pacientes era muy necesario y que era la carrera que queria seguir despues de mi retiro de la industria farmaceutica.

Durante este mismo tiempo mi madre se puso muy enferma y me convirti en su cuidadora . Fue una experiencia reveladora para mi la cantidad de trabajo que tenia que hacer para su cuido. Hablaba constantemente con su equipo medico, creacion de segundas opiniones y elegir el centro adecuado para su atencion.  Al final lamentablemente fallecio, pero pude ser su voz para conseguir las mejores opciones de atencion medica que ella se merecia. Despues de esta experiencia yo sabia que queria ayudar a otros nevegar a traves de este complicado laberinto de tramites, normas, reglamentos y leyes.

Despues de retirarme de ventas farmaceuticas decidi seguir una carrera en Asistente de Pacientes. Una vez mas me encontre con otro reto de convertirme en la cuidadora para mi hermana que fue diagnosticada con cancer en los senos.  Investigar y encontrar el mejor equipo medico y cirujano era la prioridad. Tambien obtuve segundas opiniones para que pudieramos hacer las mejores decisiones medicas para lograr los mejores resultados posibles. Afortunadamente despues de este proceso complicado y largo, mi hermana esta ahora libre de cancer y esta bien. 

Estas experiencias me han ensenado dos cosas, que preciosa la vida puede ser y que manana no es prometido para nadie.
