Cancer can affect anyone. It doesn’t matter what race or socioeconomic status you are. Everyone who has a cancer diagnosis needs help, so I like that I get to work with and care for all types of people. I first worked in oncology as a registered nurse before I got my advanced nursing degree. I really enjoy working with oncology patients so it made sense for me to continue working in oncology as a nurse practitioner. I’m also a member of the Oncology Nursing Society and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
I’m always here for my patients. I listen and encourage them to ask questions. Everyone on the transplant team has the same goal of working together to provide the best care that we can for our patients. Above all, I treat every one of my patients how I would want to be treated.
Area of clinical practice
Blood and Marrow Transplantation
It’s nice to meet my patients before transplant, get them ready for transplant and then see them heal after the transplant. My transplant patients inspire me daily.
We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch doctors. 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.
At Fred Hutch, you receive care from a team of providers with extensive experience in your disease.
