What brought you to oncology?

I have always been intrigued with cancer because it can be so complicated. Because of this, we physicians need to stay up to date on the latest in the field. It keeps us on our toes.

What do you value most about your work?

It is important to me to help patients feel informed so they can make the right decisions during one of the most difficult times in their lives.

Provider background

Specialty: Medical Oncology

Medical oncology, integrative oncology, GI cancers

I am a medical oncologist who sees patients at Fred Hutch at Overlake Cancer Center.

I like to see decisions as collaborative: I consider each patient’s personal situation and focus on their quality of life, and I enjoy working with a team that’s focused on this, too. I also find my long-term relationships with my patients very fulfilling. I like taking care of patients as a whole and serving as their guide.

Our mission is to provide patients with the highest quality, personalized care closer to home. As part of Fred Hutch, our community oncologists offer patients multidisciplinary tumor board opinions, clinical trials and expertise in treating a variety of cancers.

Clinical trials

We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch doctors. Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your doctor can decide if a study is right for you.


Many of our Fred Hutch doctors conduct ongoing research to improve standards of patient care. Their work is evaluated by other doctors and selected for publication to the United States National Library of Medicine, the largest medical library in the world.
