Practice Focus, Interests
Andrea Rosenblume is passionate about insuring that each individual in our community has access to the help and resources necessary to navigate through their own unique network of healthcare providers to receive high quality, timely and affordable care. Her passion stems from her own experience fighting to meet the healthcare needs of her own parents and family.
Andrea has 18 years of experience working in the healthcare sector as an Occupational Therapist, mostly in managerial and leadership roles. She has worked as an OT in healthcare systems in the San Francisco Bay Area, including acute care hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, outpatient clinics, and home healthcare. Andrea has a special interest in working with the senior population, but has also had extensive experience working with young adults and older adults.
Through her advocacy practice, Andrea is committed to making access to quality healthcare as easy and stress-free as possible for her clients, and to providing them with exceptional customer service. She learned what it means to deliver legendary customer service through many years of experience working in the retail industry, including time at Starbucks Corporation, owning her own jewelry business and growing up working at her parents’ family pharmacy in San Francisco.
With her strong background in occupational therapy and customer relations, Andrea looks forward to improving the care and quality of life for each of her clients through her role as their healthcare advocate.
Andrea received her Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Southern California and her Bachelor’s degree in Human Development from University of California, Davis. She is a Certified Healthcare Advocate and a member of the National Association of Healthcare Advocacy Consultants. Andrea has also been active in her community, volunteering for non-profit agencies such as the American Red Cross, the American Cancer Society and the Alzheimer’s Association.
