NShore is excited to introduce our newest advocate and Regional Director of Sales and Marketing, Julie Frentzas!

Julie comes to NShore with a wealth of experience in both clinical and sales and marketing in the healthcare industry. Julie is a dedicated patient advocate and health care educator who is passionate about helping people find the best solutions to complex medical problems in a way that provides clarity and authenticity.  She prides herself in collaboratively working with others and building sincere relationships.

Julie Frentzas

After graduating from Rush University Medical Center with a BS in Nursing, Julie worked as a nurse at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where she enjoyed treating and caring for her patients.  As healthcare began to shift to a more managed-care business model, Julie made an informed professional decision to stay in healthcare but to transition into a sales and marketing role, enabling her to continue helping patients from a different perspective.  Julie enjoyed a lengthy and successful career in medical, pharmaceutical, and home health care sales and marketing. 

Several years ago, Julie felt grateful that her medical background helped her understand and advocate for herself during her own health crisis.  That life-changing experience validated why she dedicated herself to a career in health care:  to compassionately help others who don’t have the ability, knowledge base or even desire to advocate for themselves and to ensure that they receive the quality of care and education they deserve to make informed medical decisions for themselves.

When Julie isn’t working, she spends time with her husband, 3 children, and her dog.  Julie is grateful for the career path she chose because it enables her to give something back and live a meaningful life.

We’re incredibly excited to have Julie on board. Look for her at future NShore events and say hello!

With over 36 years of clinical experience in Critical Care nursing, home based health care and expertise as a cardiovascular nurse clinician, Teri is well acquainted with the complexities of the modern healthcare system. She has served as a nursing leader, mentor, educator, and consistent patient advocate throughout her career in some of the best hospitals across the country. Her passion to keep the patient at the center of the model of nursing care led her to incorporate NShore Patient Advocates, LLC in 2011, serving clients throughout the northern suburbs of Chicago.
