HTM Consultants evolved over the years when I was struck with a heavy heart when my late father, a former US veteran who was exposed to Agent Orange, fell ill and eventually proceeded in death at the age of 61 from cancer. His efforts of seeking help was disappointing and without success. I keep his memory alive by devoting my time to helping others in our community and nationwide through advocacy services.
