Patient Care Philosophy
A cancer diagnosis has a profound effect on both patients and their families or loved ones. I believe that providing honest and compassionate care not only provides the best possible care to the patient but also the family.

Maggie Kendrick is a nurse practitioner with clinical expertise thoracic/lung, head, and neck cancers at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
Cancer care has long been a passion of Maggie’s but she was initially drawn to her role as a nurse practitioner through an interest in the biology of diseases. As an undergraduate student, Maggie took a “Biology of Cancer” course that she found uniquely interesting. Coupled with seeing family members affected by cancer, she developed a multi-faceted interest in cancer care. “I had some amazing interactions with incredible healthcare workers,” said Maggie. “When I was deciding what I wanted to do in healthcare, I knew that it would involve oncology patients.” She continues to feel inspired by her patients and enjoys the personal interactions and relationships that she is able to build every day.
“Cancer is becoming a chronic disease,” said Maggie, who values SCCA’s advancements in targeted and directed therapies. Maggie hopes that at SCCA she is able to provide more education and screening to catch a cancer diagnosis early, giving her the ability to use SCCA’s unique treatment resources to treat a patient’s disease effectively.
When she isn’t at work, Maggie enjoys reading, visiting with friends and family, watching movies, and cooking.
