I’ve known Rebecca all my life – she’s my “little sister”. However, it is her work as an advocate that I wish to recommend. She is a fighter – a dedicated, determined, persistent, thorough advocate. Her power in that role comes from her calm sense of the rightness of her particular cause and belief that others will come around to her point of view with enough reason, sugar, and force. I’ve observed Rebecca most directly as she has fought various systems (medical, educational, remedial, funding, etc.) to get the services that her son needs to make him as fully capable, as he is possible of being. It is incredible to watch her arm wrestle the doctors and hospitals into doing what is right, to wring money out of insurance companies, government agencies, and third party grantors, and to procure access to activities beyond measure. When Rebecca has taken on the case of other people, it is that same tenacity that comes to play. It happened when she took on the hospitals, nursing home, doctors, and her own family in relationship to her mother’s health care, and it has happened for others. Her skills of advocacy honed by working on behalf of her own disabled son are talents that others will want used for themselves and those they love. Rebecca has taken a struggle and crafted a skill set around it. It is a remarkable thing to see at work!
