With a broad array of expertise in Elder Law and Risk Management, Sheron brings a level of experience that is unique compared to other Elder Law attorneys. Sheron is an experienced Health Care Risk Manager licensed by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. For example, her extensive background in hospital risk management has given her the knowledge that is rarely found in Elder Law to better enable clients to prepare for unexpected loop-holes in the system. She has taken this unique training and proficiency and expanded to grow her practice in this area.
