“I know what it’s like to have loved ones experience difficult diagnoses, treatment plans and the fear of not knowing what’s to come.”

— Katherine

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

I want patients to know I am in their corner advocating for them. I want to help people make informed decisions about their care. To me, this means giving clear explanations about medical topics and making sure patients have ample opportunities to voice questions and concerns.

Do you have any favorite memories of working with patients you’d like to share?

As a student, I spent some time working in a long-term care facility. I recall one older gentleman who required frequent visits, where I learned not just about his health problems, but also about him. He told me about his adventures traveling the world with his wife as a young man, showed me his model plane collection and shared his excitement about his grandkids coming to visit. I even got to meet them and the rest of his family.

Medicine is not just about treating a disease. It’s about improving patients’ lives so they can spend more time doing what they love with the people they care about.

Provider Background

Area of Clinical Practice
Blood and marrow transplantation, immunotherapy

I am a certified physician assistant who sees patients at the South Lake Union Clinic.

I care for patients undergoing stem cell transplants and immunotherapy for blood cancers. Blood and marrow transplant and immunotherapy offer a unique opportunity to practice internal medicine while also being on the leading edge of cancer care. It allows me to form meaningful relationships with patients during a challenging phase of their lives. I am passionate about providing high-quality, personalized care as part of a multidisciplinary team.

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.
