Why Priscilla wanted to create Graith Care?
Since I started my career in 2004, as a registered nurse, I have seen many patients struggle in their healthcare journey. So, I made the decision to provide something beyond what the regular healthcare system does today. Today’s healthcare is often very reactive and focused on disease management and leaves the patient far from knowing what is really happening. I bring my experiences of working in the hospital, outpatient, hospice, home care, and insurance industries to help advocate for those in need. It is time to give control back to the healthcare consumer!
Graith’s Care name came together by bringing my two daughters names of Grace and Faith in one, the word Graith means “to make ready and prepare”. Graith Care wants to close the gaps in healthcare for the patient’s benefit, bringing all the pieces of the healthcare puzzle together for the best satisfaction in care delivery.
This is a family business as the 4 kids, Oliver our family dog, and my husband Josh have all been apart of this amazing journey to stand in the gap for those that need advocacy! Priscilla’s husband helps with the newsletter “GRAITHFUL TIMES” editions and many more things!
Enjoying family time and building memories with Gabe, Grace, Elijah, and Faith are so important to us as we know life can be all too short. We pray daily and have a strong faith and belief that God will continue to provide and protect. Thank you for supporting Graith Care and sharing the word about this amazing team of advocates!
“My name is Whitney Hunsaker and I have been a Pediatric nurse for 9 years. I established my nursing career in Lubbock, TX and continue to work as a staffing nurse at a Children’s Hospital.

I believe in providing advocacy and providing options for those in need. Healthcare has changed and we need to focus on prevention and advocacy. I love helping people and I can see my role in Graith Care Advocacy is making an impact. I am blessed to be part of this team.

I am #Graithful to be a part of the Graith Care team! I have over 25 years’ experience as a healthcare professional managing clinical and financial healthcare risk. For the bulk of my career, I have worked to bring improved healthcare solutions to market and launched numerous cost-containment initiatives within the managed healthcare and employer space. My clinical focus encompasses: Cardiology, Oncology, Perinatal/Neonatal, Transplant and Specialty Pharmaceuticals. I have recently expanded into more holistic healthcare modalities including the use of cannabis as medicine– providing customized treatment plans to empower people with confidence to take charge of their own healthcare decisions. I am on a renewed mission to share my knowledge and expertise of emerging solutions, that the healthcare consumer may not be aware of. I am enthusiastic about empowering people with insights on how to navigate our complex healthcare system – all while holding the healthcare system accountable! I am a strong proponent of shared decision-making and informed consent between patient and provider. I received my Registered Nursing degree from the University of St. Catherine’s in St. Paul, MN, I am a Board-Certified Case Manager (CCM) and Board-Certified Patient Advocate (BCPA). I am active in many professional organizations and advisory boards. In my free time, you can find me with family, near the water in either NW Wisconsin or SW Florida.

Chris is a naturopathic doctor (“drugless doctor”) whose passion is getting to the underlying cause of any health imbalance and reversing degenerative disease via natural means ~ because the body doesn’t know dis-ease by name!
That passion grew out of her own personal health crisis 20 years ago when she was diagnosed with Stage 3 aggressive breast cancer and prescribed chemo-, radiation & Arimidex.
She refused all three and embarked on her own healing quest utilizing detoxification, Vitamin C IV therapy, Iscador, good nutrition, and a variety of supplements.
Chris has been helping patients since 2006 using root-cause resolution medicine, providing full-disclosure of healthCARE options, and offering optimal treatments & therapies.
She is #Graithful now to be a part of the Graith Care team.
Chris believes that knowledge is power if it is used wisely, and that, “The only freedom…is that of pursuing our own good in our own way… Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily or mental or spiritual. Over his own health, the individual is sovereign.” – John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)
My name is Brittany Seabaugh and I have worked in healthcare since 2008. I started as an EMT and graduated from Denver School of Nursing in 2011. I have worked primarily in Emergency Medicine and did travel nursing in CA, AZ, and HI. I began doing international medical missions and traveled to various countries including Mexico, India, and Morocco until the COVID pandemic started in 2020. After being put on unpaid leave due to empty hospitals in Denver, I volunteered in NYC ready to jump in and help where I was needed. I quickly realized that greatest threat to our country and world was not COVID-19 but rather the lies, manipulation, and greed within the medical field and the pharmaceutical companies.
I ended up working in Orange County, CA until I lost my job due to the vaccine mandates. I have spent a majority of my time in the last year working as a freedom activist and traveling with many of the freedom fighters including Leigh Dundas, Tom Renz, Dr. Ryan Cole, and Josh Yoder with US Freedom Flyers. I was honored to get to know Dr. Ardis and thrilled when I learned of Graith Care in early 2022.
My heart has been broken as I have watched people follow the corrupted healthcare mandates and media manipulation which has led to the loss of so many lives. Healthcare has been focusing too long on “treating” patients’ verses curing them and encouraging a healthy lifestyle. I believe people need to be supported, properly educated, and ALWAYS given the freedom of choice. I have so much respect for Priscilla and the work she is providing and that is why I’m honored to work with Graith Care and their partnership with Dr. Ardis.
Margene was born in Wisconsin & lived there most of her life & married for 35 years to her high school sweetheart Ron. They have twin boys Adam & Aaron, and a younger son Andrew. A few years ago, Ron took a new job, so the 2 of them, relocated just outside of Detroit Mi. She enjoys golfing, exercising & walking her Husky Kounmpo everyday!
During her33+ years of hospital nursing experience, she strived to provide safe, competent & compassionate care to primarily adult & geriatric patients. This includes those with chronic disease or acute life-threatening illness, as well as those undergoing surgery & procedures, (both lifesaving & elective) Over the years, hospitalized patient acuity has increased, but unfortunately staffing shortages have also increased. Gone are the days of a patient’s own primary Dr following them during their hospital stay, but instead assigned a hospitalist to oversee their care. Often patients would say they felt like they’re just a number. Electronic Medical Records and nurses utilizing computers on wheels at the bedside also added to less personalized care.
What has influenced my choice to become an advocate was when she realized the dramatic change in the health care system during the COVID pandemic when authoritarian Government control took over even more of the hospital systems, including their employed physicians, nurses & other staff. No longer was care guided by individualized plans & measured by successful outcomes, but rather mandated one size fits all protocol, with punishment for “disobeying”. This is wrong.
Margene always fights for patients & their family’s best interest, using her many years nursing experience. That fight will extend into her role as an advocate & is honored to be part of Graith Care’s Advocate team!
I have been a nurse for 5 yrs. Started in ICU and worked my way down into the Cath lab and now I am the charge nurse for the outpatient area for the Cath Lab. Cardiac nursing is my specialty.
As a nurse for 29+ years, I have worked at the bedside in many settings from small Critical Access hospitals where you “do it all” to large ERs and a Medical/Surgical floor of a large hospital. My Bachelor of Science was obtained in Grand Junction, Colorado. After working my first 12 years in a small hospital in Rifle, Colorado, I have spent the last 16 years as a travel nurse. I have recently left the bedside setting and prefer to help people navigate through this confusing healthcare system.
Advocating for my patients has always been part of my standard of care! I am holistically and alternative care focused and have a passion to empower, educate and encourage clients to be the leader of their healthcare team. No one knows you better than you! I was functional med minded before that phrase was coined. The root cause of illness is one major key to health.
Research into alternative, holistic, and natural methods of treating chronic and acute health issues is also a passion of mine. While I have been helping people navigate through a sometimes-confusing healthcare system for many years, the support I receive from Graith Care is awesome! I receive great satisfaction in knowing that I am able to impact people’s health and their lives so much more in this role then at the bedside!
I am excited to be a part of the Graith Care Team of Advocates. This is a dream come true for me!
The story shows that despite difficulties, things can be turned around to a positive ending giving the message “never give up” and inspiring perseverance with self-help to a child audience. This book helps to put parents and grandparents mind’s at ease by teaching children some very basic ideas that children can follow when they get minor injuries. Even a boo boo can lead to a learning experience. A great resource to keep on hand for the kiddos to empowers them to do what they can to take care of their own minor injuries. A life lesson that will never be wasted! The book’s illustrations are fun and well done.
My Name is Gail Ellis-Ross and I have been a nurse in Michigan for 14 years. I started at the bedside on a Cardiac Step-down unit where I worked for 4 years. I then spent 4 years in an Endoscopy unit assisting in outpatient, inpatient, and emergent procedures. Our Endoscopy unit provided routine procedures as well as advanced and diagnostic procedures both for Gastroenterology and for Pulmonology. In this position I worked closely with physicians for gastric procedures as well as Critical Care Pulmonologist for bronchial procedures. After the Endoscopy role I went into Critical Care. I worked at the bedside in Critical Care for 3 years and was the Critical Care nurse for our Sepsis Committee whose goal was to create, educate, and implement a system wide Sepsis detection and intervention system. To raise the standard of care as well as equip our unit with medical devices, skills, and support needed, I moved into management and worked in management for 1 year. After learning that management in a Trauma level I hospital did not focus on the patient, and it was not concerned with raising the standard of care provided to our patients by our nursing staff I left management.
I have been an adjunct nursing clinical instructor for the local community college since late 2020. I have a desire to assist patients and families in navigating the healthcare process. I have been a longtime proponent of patient advocates and the need for patient education. Since the onset of COVID-19 I have been extremely disappointed in healthcare with their response to treatment plans for patients, the lockdown of hospitals, and the lies and manipulation used to control patients and families. I can no longer be a part of this corrupt industry and my beloved position at the bedside is changed forever.
I fought to get my 82 year old dad treated for Pneumonia during the peak of Covid-19 in December 2020, the hospital wanted to admit him for Covid, and I refused. I was able to get him the medication he needed and keep him out of lockdown. I realized then that there is a huge need for patient advocates, people who can give advice and assistance to patients and families at their most vulnerable, and I wanted to be a part of it.
Graith Care has given me the opportunity to help patients and families who are vulnerable to the healthcare industry. I can be an advocate to you, the advocate, and assist you in navigating this system to get the help you need.

For the past 2 years, working in ‘healthcare’ was out of the question for me due to the information being shared that I knew was against what I know as ‘truth’ about infection, transmission, mask usage, and injections to prevent disease. Nursing has been my life since 1980 and for the past 25 years, end-of-life care became my focus in the hospice and palliative care areas. Even these areas were not open to the kind of care I learned from nature that patients and clients needed.
While being with many patients nearing death over 25 years, I asked Source to help me find a way to be of service to the sick and dying that was outside the current medical system. ‘Careful what you ask for’. A journey to the desert in Arizona with a Native American shaman began my spiritual journey, leading to care of the ‘whole’ person, whether sick, well or dying using integrative/alternative interventions. In May of this year, a healer friend and I began discussions about starting a service to help those of ‘like mind’ with navigating the current health care system (sick care).
Searching the web for truth, I saw Priscilla Romans interviewed by Dr. Ardis in May 2022 and was so excited that I emailed her that day and told my friend, “Here is what we wanted to do, and Priscilla has already created it!”
Graith Care’s mission is an amazing, holistic and compassionate approach to providing care options from expert advocates who can share their experience. I look forward to working with the clients who need advocacy through these difficult times. Welcome to true, holistic Health Care management and advocacy! – Myra L. Lovvorn, RN, MSN, FNP-BC
My name is Melissa Goldbeck. I have been a registered nurse for the past 24 years. For the first five years of my nursing career, I worked as a mother-baby nurse.
In August of 2002, I decided to accept a position as a school nurse for students in grades 6-8. I had to learn how to incorporate my nursing practice into an educational setting. For the past 20 years, I have worked with students with chronic medical conditions, and have helped school staff implement plans to help students succeed in the academic setting. As a school nurse, I must advocate for students because school staff do not always understand how a medical condition can affect how a student will perform in school. Presently, I work with students ranging from preschool to high school. Serving my students and their families is a priority in my school nurse practice. I would love to bring my skills and experience to promote the health and wellness of my Graith Care clients!

Certified Holistic Nutritionist & Gut Health Specialist, Ethan Dansereau helps his clients to achieve a healthier lifestyle and better overall wellbeing using food as medicine and other natural therapies. Addressing your nutritional deficiencies, which is one of the biggest root causes of health issues, is the most important step to feeling better. Heal your gut, heal yourself!
My interest in holistic health started when I was dealing with chronic gut issues and anxiety. I felt as if I was way too young to be feeling this way, so I kept masking the symptoms with medications only to exacerbate my issues. After almost giving up and accepting that I was going to feel this way the rest of my life, I decided to give natural medicine a try. I shortly learned what the root cause of my issues were and was amazed how much better I felt after applying the things I was taught! What we eat has a major impact on how we feel, and I wanted everyone to know it’s possible! So, I decided to attend the Energetic Institute for Holistic Nutrition.
Now, I use what I learned to help people who are suffering just like I was. We take a deep dive into your current diet and lifestyle, decipher what systems/organs of the body need assistance and teach you how to utilize food, supplements, and natural therapies to support your needs. The goal is to teach you how to help your body to work with you, not against you. I’m honored to be a part of the Graith team, whose goals and values are to help you take back control of your health. I love helping and seeing people heal, as they learn an important truth: The greatest healing power comes from within!
