I want to empower and educate people with gynecological cancers and help them better understand their disease processes. I want to provide the best care and support possible during some of the most vulnerable times in people’s lives.
My patients and the perseverance they have. My family and the strong women in it. The ability to make an impact on people and their communities, mindfulness and simply seeing a smile on someone's face.
Area of Clinical Practice
I am a certified physician assistant who sees patients at UW Medical Center – Montlake.
My research interests are focused on racial and ethnic inequities in health care, and my clinical interests are in women's health and education as well as cervical, endometrial and ovarian cancers.
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 provider 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 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 dieticians, 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.
