Specialties and clinical expertise
The branch of medicine a provider practices and their areas of focus
I’ve always had a love for science and initially saw myself going into a career in basic research. But I missed interacting personally with people who are directly impacted by the advances in care that research brings. Working in cancer care gives me the opportunity to have that connection between the science and those who benefit from it. I spent over 20 years doing acute oncology care, mainly breast cancer treatment. Now, as a provider in the Survivorship Clinic, I get to focus on coaching a wide variety of patients after treatment — about topics like how to engage in wellness, how to return to their lives and make the most out of their experience, how to cope with potential late and long-term side effects of treatment and how to overcome any barriers, real or perceived, to having a healthy lifestyle.
How can we keep improving care for cancer survivors?
