I chose to work in healthcare, because I wanted to help people in a meaningful and significant way and healthcare is an integral part of people's lives. I want to help people live their best lives by providing excellent healthcare. In my lifetime, I look forward to seeing further advancements in early diagnosis and prevention of cancer in the future. Outside of caring for patients, I enjoy traveling, trying new restaurants and spending time with my partner, Greg, our two cats, and our dog.

We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch doctors. Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your doctor can decide if a study is right for you.
At Fred Hutch, you receive care from a team of providers with extensive experience in your disease. Your team includes doctors, a patient care coordinator, a registered nurse, an advanced practice provider and others, based on your needs. You also have access to experts like nutritionists, social workers, acupuncturists, psychiatrists and more who specialize in supporting people with cancer or blood disorders.
Fred Hutch accepts most national private health insurance plans as well as Medicare. We also accept Medicaid for people from Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho. We are working to ensure that everyone, no matter what their financial situation, has access to the care they need.
