Pat Freeman

Private Patient Advocate

Pat felt the calling to be a nurse when she received the Golden Book “Pepper is a Nurse”. She read that story many times and can still remember the cover showing a girl of about 9 years old pulling a red wagon with First Aid supplies behind her, putting Band-Aids on the neighborhood kids. Pat spent over 25 years as a cardiovascular nurse taking care of all types of cardiac patient. Her favorite areas to work were the Cardiac Catheterization Lab where broken hearts were fixed, with the thrill of fixing those hearts sometimes in the middle of the night, and Cardiac Rehab, where Pat was able to educate and advocate for patients recovering from all types of cardiovascular procedures. Pat has always had a passion for speaking up for her patients when things might not seem right or might need to be changed. She has never been afraid to speak up for the patient, and to make others aware of where care might be falling short of what the patient requires. She will not hesitate to advocate for you and your loved one. Pat has also been a nurse educator for other nurses and hospital staff, as well as for physicians ,nurse practitioners, and physician assistants when working in the medical device industry educating on a wearable defibrillator for advanced heart failure patients. Pat and her husband Scott have a large, blended family of 6 kids, and 10 grandkids. She enjoys time on her 5-acre farm with their 3 horses, 5 chickens and an ornery rooster, as well as a golden retriever, and rescue tuxedo cat.
