About Raye Elaine
I have 39 years of experience as a Cardiac Ultrasound Technologist (often known as an Echo Tech) so I especially enjoy working with heart patients. I have worked in hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices and also for a commercial ultrasound company. I currently do insurance billing for a small psychotherapy practice, so I have an understanding of how to work with Medicare, Medi-Cal, and private insurers. Having served both patients and providers gives me a broad view of the perspectives of each, which makes me a more effective mediator and “translator.”
I have supported heart patients, cancer patients, stroke patients, and elders with multiple healthcare issues through their healthcare crises and ongoing healthcare needs. I also have a wealth of knowledge about alternative and complimentary healthcare, such as acupuncture, massage, herbal medicine and more. In 2019 I became a Board Certified Patient Advocate in order to be able to share my experience and expertise with more people in order to help facilitate and ease their journey through a difficult illness or healthcare challenge.
In addition to my healthcare background I carry a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology and I am an ordained Interfaith Minister. Not only can I help you manage the logistics of your healthcare experience, I can also help support the emotional, psychological, and spiritual aspects of your journey.
I look forward to exploring how I might be of service to you in obtaining the highest quality healthcare and quality of life.
