We provide online information searches to assist clients with medical, legal, public policy, health and safety, real estate/personal property, insurance and other  concerns.

Searches are conducted by a master’s prepared educator, and registered nurse,  former Rand Corporation researcher and university lecturer with a broad professional background including  public service, public health and safety, infection prevention, compliance, business and advocacy.

Our services can help clients identify and evaluate treatment options, studies, devices and products, settle disputes, successfully oppose projects and identify and resolve problems before they become crises.

We also perform mini-searches to verify background check information, statements or claims of applicants or acquire valid information for any purpose.

We are particularly experienced with health conditions that are difficult to manage,  understand,  diagnose or  navigate through the healthcare system such as cancer,  EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity) and adrenal fatigue;  health and safety issues such as cellphone hazards, disaster planning,  product evaluation/safety, and infection prevention; small business, land use and public policy matters.

We  strive to provide factual and useful information and resources. We have no conflicts of interest. We do not accept advertising or referral fees.

Your privacy is safe with us. All information is handled with the strictest level of confidentiality and privacy according to HIPPA guidelines and our own privacy policy. We do not share any information about clients – not even contact information or demographics.
