A close family member was diagnosed with prostate cancer years ago and went through surgical and medical treatment. I observed the health care professionals guiding him through this process with grace and compassion. As a result of their timely and expert care, he is in remission. My family is grateful for the team that took such excellent care of him. I value the opportunity to care for others and their loved ones the way we were cared for.
Our work as health care professionals is uniquely intimate. Helping someone navigate a challenging health-related issue and seeing a positive outcome is extremely rewarding. I also enjoy being part of an ever-changing field.
Our team has a multidisciplinary approach to individual care and offers groundbreaking treatment options. This allows patients the opportunity to select the options with the best outcomes.
Area of Clinical Practice
I am a certified family nurse practitioner who sees patients at UW Medical Center – Montlake.
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 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.
