What brought you to SCCA and to your role?

I thought it would be an interesting way for me to be able to provide support and encouragement to women and to anyone with breast concerns. It is such a truly vulnerable time in people’s lives.
 

What do you hope it's like to work with you, from a patient's perspective?

I hope patients feel safe and comfortable with me. I try to do whatever I can to foster an environment that is supportive.
