My experience with hematologic malignancies and stem cell transplant started in high school when my father was diagnosed with acute leukemia. I have now been working as a physician assistant in stem cell transplant for over 5 years.
When I was 15 years old my father was diagnosed with acute leukemia and received a life-saving stem cell transplant from an anonymous donor. He received exceptional care and this inspired my career path in transplant and also volunteering with the National Marrow Donor Program to add more donors to our registry to make transplants available for every patient. I hope to see cures for every form of cancer and ongoing development of supportive care to improve the quality of life for patients and their families in my lifetime.
Outside of work, Emily enjoys traveling and spending time outside and with loved ones.
