Healthlink Advocates was founded to address the significant problems, challenges and complexities a person experiences when navigating our current healthcare system.  The founder, Lorie Gardner, as a nurse and businesswoman, witnessed too many cases where optimal health outcomes were not achieved and the patient was left with a poor outcome, excessive medical bills and unclear diagnoses and/or treatment options.   Our passion is to ensure a person is empowered and educated on all aspects of their health.  It was clear that every individual utilizing the healthcare system needed an “insider” to decode the entire system for them.  Thus, a team of passionate health professionals formed Healthlink Advocates.

We are a team of health professionals that have leveraged their enthusiasm and drive to help others with our extensive backgrounds in nursing, healthcare business, wellness coaching and chronic disease management.  We know that supporting and coaching individuals and companies in a professional and ongoing method yields improved outcomes, better self-management and sustainable change.

We differentiate ourselves in the healthcare advocacy/consultant space by combining healthcare advocacy skills with wellness coaching. We provide this expertise and support to those in need of accessing the healthcare system during times of illness, surgery or aging and combine that with wellness coaching and motivational interviewing to improve outcomes and client satisfaction. The core values of compassion, knowledge, professionalism, dependability and integrity guide our actions to accomplish our clients goals.
