Patients have families, friends, career goals and future aspirations. I approach providing care holistically and consider these aspects when discussing the plan with patients.
There are so many people who have been directly impacted by cancer. I try to remember my own experiences being a friend or family member when I approach caring for patients.
Area of Clinical Practice
Acute care oncology, acute clinical evaluation
I am an advanced registered nurse practitioner who sees patients at the South Lake Union Clinic and UW Medical Center – Montlake.
Oncology is a complex field, with exciting research being published every year. I enjoy learning and growing as a health care provider and being challenged by these complexities.
I have previous emergency department experience, and my role in acute clinical evaluation blends my passions for both emergency medicine and hematology-oncology.
