“I am pleased to refer clients to Scout Advocacy as I trust these professional advocates without reservation. Not only is this group responsive to the needs of my clients, it also offers my clients the compassionate and caring attention they so deserve.

Jane Malkoff, MSN, RN, NP
She earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing in 1988 from Ball State University, her master’s degree in adult health in 1994 from Indiana University, and obtained her nurse practitioner license in 1994. Passion to improve the lives of elders has driven Jane’s life and her work.
Jane is on the board of the Central Indiana Senior Fund, a fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation and is a community educator in dementia and Parkinson’s disease care.
Jane and her husband, Jeff, have two children, Joel and Victor, and live in Noblesville.
Anne Ward, RN
Anne is fascinated by the life stories of others and their impact on personal growth, character development, the decisions they make, and the convictions they hold. This curiosity inspired her to pursue a BA in psychology/business administration and, a few years later, a BSN in nursing.
After working in a hospital for seven years with patients who had pulmonary, renal, oncological, and other conditions, and spending several years in home care, she became a Care Consultant in 2018. This role combined knowledge from her prior nursing experience with her practical nature, allowing her to creatively look at the whole picture of health needs to help guide clients to connect with solutions both inside and outside the box.
For fun, she enjoys spending time with her husband, daughters, family, and friends. Creating, volunteering, and Irish dancing also keep her occupied outside of work.
Terri graduated from North Central High School with a major in business and English. She is dedicated to helping the elder community and uses her firsthand experience, having been the youngest of six kids and the caretaker of her parents in later years. Terri also serves as a part-time paralegal for Bennett & McClammer LLP.
Terri and her husband, Tim, live in Indianapolis, along with their three wonderful cats.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in business in 1986 from Indiana University and her master’s degree in business in 1996 from Butler University. Jenny and her partner, Gwen, live in Greenwood with their dog, Dak, and cat, Linus. They also enjoy their flock of chickens and pond full of fish.
Earning a BS in Business Administration from Indiana University/ Bloomington, and an MBA in Finance from Butler University, Suzanne entered a long leadership career spanning several industries- where trial by fire, board meetings, and mergers/acquisitions were status quo on any given day. It was a great learning experience, and created lifelong friendships…but the word “meaningful” was not a strong descriptor of corporate worklife for Suzanne.
Joining this amazing group of professionals committed to senior advocacy after leaving corporate America offered the first real opportunity to see meaningful benefits of her work, for Scout Advocacy clientele, their families, and her colleagues.
Suzanne is an avid reader, lifelong learner, and enjoys her pet bird, flying, yoga, hiking, and travelling.
