Why do you practice oncology?

I always wanted to work in health care because it provides a continuous exposure to a variety of challenging and interesting experiences. I decided to start treating cancer patients to participate in improving patients' quality of life during and after completion of cancer treatment.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, outdoor activities, community outreach and travel.

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.
