Patient Care Advocate
Born and raised in Florida, Jeff spent his days surfing the beaches of Martin County and enjoying all the coastal activities this town has to offer. After graduating Martin County High School, Jeff attended Rollins College where he obtained a Bachelors in Political science with a minor in communications. Jeff pursued a career in home medical equipment and eventually transitioned into hospice care. It was in hospice care that Jeff found his true calling for helping patients and families during their most difficult and trying times. During this period, he saw the need for a small personalized concierge private duty service to help families with the extra care needed at home. In a community that has given so much to him and his family, his biggest joy is providing the best level of care for the residents of Martin County.
