Since 1990, I loved the profession of taking care of patients with cancer and supporting their families and friends. I am part of an awesome team of nurse navigators, pharmacists, provider-colleagues, clinical nurses and other teammates. I have specialized in melanoma since 2003, but over the years, I have worked with patients with many tumor types. I have held leadership positions in education through the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the Alliance of Academic Internal Medicine and the ACGME. My patients will often see students from medical school through fellowship training, working with me in the clinic.
