Education and Experience

Indiana University - BSN, Nursing/Registered Nurse:  2001 – 2005

I graduated from Indiana University in 2005 with a Bachelorette Degree in the Science of Nursing. I accepted my first position as an Assistant Director of Nursing in a Skilled Nursing Facility.

I then moved to South Carolina where I began a rewarding career in both the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit and Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Providence Heart Hospital for nearly 10 years.

I began my career in Legal Nursing in late 2013.  Since then, I have worked extensively with many attorneys in the South Carolina area. I am currently preparing for National Accredidation with the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Life Care Planning?

A Life Care Plan (LCP) is a cost projection for prospective medical care over a lifetime or for a specific procedure(s). 

How are Life Care Plans Developed?

A Registered Nurse reviews injury reports, healthcare facility documentation, medical questionnaires, and independent medical evaluations. Next, the nurse develops a comprehensive care plan to address the clients future medical needs. Finally, a physician of your choice reviews and signs off on the document for validity.

Why utilize a Life Care Planner?

Life Care Plans are essential in reducing insurance settlement liens and projecting real-time cost associated with an injury.

I've been Legal Nursing for almost two years now (twelve years Cardiac ICU). It was not easy to start my business and by no means do I feel like I am an expert. What I do know, is that I didn't know, how much I knew. Starting up is HARD but you have to start. Getting your first case is the best feeling you will ever have. Persistence is the key to success. So here are a few points I've learned in the last two years. If this goes well and I don't get kicked off LinkedIn, I'll share more. Thanks!!!

Have the basics

Obtain the proper business licenses, LLC's, and liability insurance. Even if you work out of your home, BE LEGAL.

2. Marketing

Have solid and professional looking materials (cards, brochures, price list) BUT do not waste your money on extravagant cards and brochures. Half of the attorney offices you visit are going to put your material in the "invisible" file and the other half may actually file you away. Never and I mean Never, ask to speak directly to the attorney when going into the office for the first time. You are not the first person walking through the door trying to sell your service. Think about Pharmaceutical Rep's. How many come to a doctors office on a daily basis? Nurses, we all know if that rep doesn't have food or candy, we are not listening. See my point. If the attorney took out time to speak to everyone coming through his/her door he'd never get anything done. My suggestion, talk to the office manager or the lead paralegal. Think of the lead paralegal as a physician's rounding nurse. If you want a specific medication for your patient, you go to his nurse. The same applies here. Leave the attorney alone. He trust his paralegal. If you make a positive impression with her your brochure will generally make it to the next level. However, once you have given a brief summary of who you are and what you do, ask the paralegal for the attorneys card. You can use his card to follow up directly with him by email. Finally, don't get discouraged. I have a return rate of 1:500. Yes, soooo not kidding. For every 500 brochures I leave. I pickup one attorney. This leads to my next point.

3. Treat Legal Nursing as your bread and butter.

To get the first client you have to work HARD. It is not good enough to make phone calls and hope to reach someone. Personal interaction is the best method to market when starting off. Remember, Legal Nursing is new in some areas and people are resistant to change what has always worked for them. By making personal contact initially, you help the attorney/paralegal recall your visit when you follow up. Don't be nervous. The worse thing that can happen is they say "Thank You, have a nice day". I've never had anyone decline my brochure, even if they really were not interested. I always gather up courage by putting in my mind that my children would not eat if I didn't get a case this month. Find something in your life that forces you to get out and market.

4. Follow Up

Always follow up!!! This is the hardest part. Write a follow up script and personalize it for each attorney. I always attach a copy of my brochure with the email just in case he/she never received the first one. Make two list: the response list and the no response list. If you get a response from the attorney turning you down, check back with them in six months. If you don't get a response, email the attorney every three months and make sure to drop off a brochure every six months.

5. If it doesn't work TRY again

If you are getting no response evaluate why. One attorney I currently work for explained to me he had several cases he considered hiring me on my first year but my email did not have a signature line for him to call me. When I fixed that problem, I had more responses on my follow up emails. So always ADPIE (Assess, Diagnose, Plan, Intervention, Evaluate) your material!!! There is Always something you can do differently.

I hope some of these tips will help. The forums are always full of these type of questions. I felt writing this information on my page is less time consuming and readily available.
