“First, always listen to what the patient has to report regarding their condition and concerns. Then educate the patient on expected treatment course and side effects and encourage the patient to be an active participant in their own care.”

Why do you practice oncology?

I have always had an internal drive to care for others and an interest in the puzzle of science. Medicine combines these two factors into one! When a patient receives a bone marrow transplant at Fred Hutch, we take over every aspect of care for our patient while they are on our service - not just the chemotherapy. We care for their chronic conditions, acute complications in any body system, and their caner. But, best of all, we have continuity of care that allows for a deeper patient-provider relationship.

In my free time, I enjoy returning home to the Midwest to visit family, traveling to National Parks to hike and enjoy Mother Nature and cooking/baking.

Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your doctor can decide if a study is right for you.
