We today face many hidden and confusing choices and some little-known options to provide us and our loved ones with crucial information affecting our physical, emotional, and financial issues.

The ongoing consolidation of the healthcare industry, combined with continually-narrowing insurance coverage, makes it essential to seriously consider adding a professional independent healthcare advocate to your arsenal of professional advisers.

Learn how to watch out for yourself and your loved ones before, during and after a medical crisis presents itself.

Practicing since 1990 as a successful national healthcare advocate, estate administrator, educator, and mentor, Lisa Berry Blackstock experiences an ongoing gamut of challenges while medically and financially protecting her clients. Correctly diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia (a painful, rare nerve disorder) in 2007 at UCLA's Orofacial Pain Clinic in the School of Dentistry, Lisa underwent successful major brain surgery. Grateful to be left without a single surgical complication, Lisa's gratitude and empathy deepened, resulting in her decision to accept a pro bono client for every retained one. A 1982 graduate at Stanford University, Lisa thrives on staying one step ahead in today's fluid healthcare environment. Her client base, ranging in ages from 36 to 103, is a source of tremendous stimulation and great satisfaction. Lisa is a member of the Alliance for Professional Health Advocates (APHA) and the National Association of Healthcare Advocacy Consultants (NAHAC.) Born and raised in Stamford, Connecticut, Lisa and her husband, Bob Blackstock, have made the Conejo Valley their home since 1994. High-altitude hiking and PAC-12 football serve as great distractions as Lisa attempts that elusive goal of life balance.
