I want to build relationships with patients and empower them to be partners in their treatment and care. I use evidence-based practices and make sure I stay informed so I can provide my patients with the highest-quality care possible.
My mom is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed when I was in high school, and I went through the treatment process with her. Her experience with the amazing team surrounding her made me want to pursue nursing as a career and focus on oncology in particular.
Area of Clinical Practice
Breast cancer, breast health
I am an advanced registered nurse practitioner who sees patients at the South Lake Union Clinic.
I worked in pediatric oncology for the first half of my nursing career. Every year, staff brought kids to the Colorado Rockies baseball training camp in Arizona. It was so much fun to see pediatric patients outside the hospital, having a great time and just being kids.
