Philosophy

I am very passionate about my role as an advocate for my patients. Fighting cancer is for many one of the most challenging experiences they will ever have. For each patient and their family, this means something entirely different and it is my job to work with you, your family and all other members of your multidisciplinary care team to provide you with the most comprehensive, up-to-date and caring treatment possible. I believe that honest and clear communication with my patients from diagnosis, through treatment, and on to survivorship will allow us to make the best treatment decisions together as a team.

Personal

Outside of work, I dedicate much of my time focusing on wellness. I exercise daily and am always trying out new programs to improve my overall health. In addition to my focus on personal wellness, I love to travel and spend time with my family and friends.
