Athena Life Care Planning is not a traditional organization.  The company partnered with North Scottsdale Health, PLLC in 2016. Both organizations are run by Dr. Kirsten Turkington -- a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner and Certified Nurse Life Care Planner.  Years ago, Dr. Turkington determined that there was a better way to compile life care plans.  She integrated her advanced education and training into a dedicated life care planning business.  Being a licensed provider with over 20 years of experience, Dr. Turkington is able to objectively and holistically assess a client's clinical needs to compile a comprehensive life care plan.  Dr. Turkington's abilities include assessing the current patient status, planning and diagnosing nursing care needs, rehabilitation, counseling, medical and education and implementing them by way of an official life care plan. She also does abbreviated medical cost estimates and crititques on existing plan including revision recommendations.   Past clients have been very pleased with the outcomes Dr. Turkington has provided. 

Dr. Turkington maintains an active clinical practice in addition to her life care planning expertise.
