Medical Oncology

“We get to know people intimately, providing care and support to them and their families and learning what they value.”

— Amy

What do you hope it’s like for a patient to work with you?

I see our roles as a partnership. I really want to get to know patients and what’s important to them so I can help them achieve their goals. Obviously, the best outcome is a priority, but what care looks like is also important. I want to help patients feel their best and have their treatment go well. 

What do you value about your work?

I want to work with patients to address all their needs and what this means for their care, treating them as individuals. It’s been rewarding to develop close relationships and partnerships and help patients feel seen and heard. With cancer, the mental, emotional and physical aspects are all something to work through.

Provider Background

Area of Clinical Practice
Breast cancer

I am a advanced registered nurse practitioner who sees patients at the South Lake Union Clinic.

I have more than a decade of experience as a nurse, including in a medical and surgical intensive care unit. I am motivated to continue to develop my practice and have always gravitated toward breast oncology because I love the patients and collaborative atmosphere.

Clinical Trials

We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch physicians. Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your physician can decide if a study is right for you.

Your Care Team

At Fred Hutch, you receive care from a team of providers with extensive experience in your disease. Your team includes physicians, a patient care coordinator, a registered nurse, an advanced practice provider and others, based on your needs. You also have access to experts like registered dietitians, 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.
