“My focus is on ensuring that a patient feels holistically nurtured and cared for. I believe that patients yearn to understand and participate in their care and it is my responsibility to provide an opportunity for them to be informed participants in their treatment.”

— Whitney

Why do you practice oncology?

My mother battled two different types of cancer, including Hodgkin’s lymphoma, throughout my childhood. I think being a part of someone’s care became second nature for me so naturally I gravitated towards healthcare. Cancer patients want to get better and they fight harder and stronger than anyone. They are truly special people. I hope to see transplant patients do better – through the acute phase of transplant and beyond. They deserve the best of chances and I hope we can provide the best. In my free time, I enjoy backpacking, running and reading.
