The Probate Nurse

“Nurses are angels on Earth, they promote health, prevent disease and help patients cope with illness… Nurses advocate for their patients and patients’ families. They develop and manage nursing care plans and instruct patients and their families in proper care.”

Welcome, and thank you for stopping by and having the courage to take the first steps after your loss. My name is Melanie and I’m a Registered Nurse, Realtor, Certified Probate Expert, and the founder of The Probate Nurse, an all-inclusive probate concierge service designed with families like yours in mind who may be navigating the often complex and frustrating probate process in Florida. This service is a plan of action created and designed to provide a continuum of care to families in need of Empathy, Compassion, Knowledge, and Guidance as they take their first steps to closing out an estate.

Armed with a diverse and multi-faceted background including Cardiac nursing, the Operating Room, Pharmaceutical sales, and Clinical Nurse Consulting, I’m prepared to handle the toughest of situations. As a licensed Registered Nurse for over 30 years, I have experienced and understand the stress of losing a loved one; as a daughter who recently lost her beloved Mother to dementia, I know the pain, confusion, and chaos that often ensues after such a profound loss. As a Certified Probate Expert, my passion remains the same in life, as it does in death, providing a continuum of care and assistance to families who are at their most vulnerable and in need of vital information.
