“I strive for my patients to feel well informed, know that I'm listening, and will be there to answer any of their questions. Dependability is a high-priority for me, in my personal and professional life.”

— Paige

What brought you to oncology?

Honestly, I have always wanted to work in medicine. It felt like a natural path for me, which I realize is not always the case.

I started out at another major teaching hospital on a hospitalist team that took care of only active oncology patients. I gained most of my experience establishing this team from the beginning and determining how different roles within various specialties can work together to best serve our patients. It has truly been my dream to do this, and in this place, too. I have always loved Seattle.

What do you value about your work?

I enjoy the interaction with patients my role provides. They have many unique needs, and I like that I get to see people over time and build relationships. Connecting with patients outside of the medicine component and learning from them is one of my favorite parts of my day. When we both get to teach each other something, it creates a mutual learning experience and more personalized care.
