About the Author

When authors Lorrie Klemons and Randy Sperling first met they realized a shared passion for patient advocacy. Randy gained her advocacy experience through a variety of jobs in the health care system and by advocating for her sick son for over twenty-five years. As a nurse and nurse educator, Lorrie spent over four decades advocating for her patients and students, and most recently, advocating for her own sick son. They continue their work as professional patient advocate coaches through their business, Patient Action, and their website.
READY…SET…ADVOCATE! is a product of their collective passion, professional advocacy expertise, and personal and painful experiences as Warrior Moms. The book is dedicated to making sure that every patient’s voice is heard in the health care setting. Call them today to speak at your next meeting.
