Do you have a better way to write this?

See example:

I am fortunate that my preceptor is always available when I needed her.

Your sentence is fine until needed, which is past tense.  Am and is are both present tense, so needed needs to agree with them.  Am fortunate, is always available, and need are present tense.  You could change them all to past tense too -- was fortunate, was always available, and needed.
