is Alicia Chambers. I am a New Zealander who was born in the Fiji Islands.
I became a United States citizen in 2008. I have been happily married
for 15 years since my husband and I met in college. He moved to Los Angeles
eight years ago to pursue his dream to become an actor and our marriage took
on a new dimension; I stay in Denver in our home with our Border collie and
he has an apartment near the Hollywood sign! When we get together,we both
enjoy the exciting city life and snowboarding and backpacking trips in
the Rocky Mountains. I also have two grown twin stepdaughters who live
in Los Angeles.
currently hold passports for three world economic regions; European Countries
(Commonwealth Access), the South Pacific and the United States.
backpacking around the world, I stumbled onto an unusual profession, Household
Management. A big part of my job for eighteen years was dealing with complex
personalities in a demanding environment that was full of unexpected events,
like a horse escaping his pasture, their teenager getting arrested, or nursing
someone back to health after plastic surgery! I worked with up to fifteen employees,
from nannies to farm hands. I had to exercise leadership by example, to
be able to run a tight, but harmonious environment. A big portion of my
work involved listening and finding solutions to problems as they arose and
I often acted as mediator between groups. This included checking on staff
tasks, maintaining property accounts, organizing home improvement projects,
negotiating and evaluating commitments with contractors, suppliers, services
best part of this work was the travel. I climbed mountains, got wet in
rivers and oceans, snowboard/skied and learned to eat strange foods.
this time, I got my Electronic Business Management BA degree, at Westwood College
of Technology and became the first generation in my family to have a degree.
I still desired to work in an industry with a caregiving direction to it.
pondered the idea of becoming a patient advocate, where one acts as a liaison
between the insurance company and the hospitals, to negotiate health care cost.
I feel that the principles of a health care advocate are similar to the approach
and philosophies of ColoHealth.
Zealand is a country where they have government funded medicine so every
person gets medical attention when they need it. I have been disappointed
by the confusing aspects of the health care industry in the US, from being denied
care and costs that don’t fit our budgets, to the limitations of
care it imposes.
for my own health insurance and my advisor was able to find me a HSA health
plan that fit my budget and my goals. I was so empowered that I actually
owned one. It belonged to me, not the government or a business.
My HSA Health plan gave me control over how my money is dispensed to the doctors,
hospital labs and procedures. What a concept!
would be glad to help you negotiate health care insurance options as your ColoHealth
advisor. Give me a call if I can be of service to you.Talk to you soon,
