    What People are Saying

    “They would have transported my son over 178 miles when he was dying if Lorena hadn’t told me what to say to stop it.”

    “Lorena is the reason my Mom didn’t get booted out of General Hospital here in WW – they weren’t going to allow the third night of stay – then she helped us get her to a rehab center.

    The hospital person acted as if we were trying to break a law! It was crazy!!!"

    “My husband was admitted to the hospital after he fell from a ladder and hit his head. Lorena explained to us there were two different types of admissions. We now know to ask the nurse which type he has been admitted under. It makes a difference for rehab stay"

    About Dr. lorena Hawkins

     "A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.”

    That’s me. And, apparently, William Shakespeare, the original subject of this expression. But my theatre is the modern sphere of social justice, empowering people to advocate for themselves, and then for others.

    Mountains are easier to climb when you can see the top.

    Personal advocacy is the root of all positive change. I help people learn how to advocate for themselves and others, so they can level the playing field in the game of life.

    Sometimes this plays out within the healthcare system, for people taking care of themselves or elderly loved ones. Sometimes it plays out in the professional space, for people who feel stuck and crave change.

    I believe in restoring a life interrupted by helping other find the answers from within. We all are geniuses inside and know the best solution for our problems, we just sometimes have a hard time trusting our geniuses.

    Guiding Principles


    I help people overcome a sense of powerlessness and instead recognize and use available resources for better outcomes.


    Social justice means leveling the playing field, no matter how old we are, how we live, what we look like, or where we come from.


    Knowledge is power. Everything I know, I openly share. What I don’t know, I seek to find out.


    I am a champion for advocating for those in vulnerable positions, and teaching others to do the same.


    I believe in open, honest and frank conversations that further knowledge and understanding.


    Personal empowerment stems from learning and discovery, so I don't lecture. Instead, I coach and teach.
