About

Advanced Practice Clinician

Treatment Philosophy

After graduating from Chatham University’s physician assistant program, I chose to specialize my practice by completing the physician assistant fellowship in oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center. During this fellowship, I rotated through each disease site in medical, surgical, and radiation oncology, as well as infectious disease and pain/palliative care. That broad experience has made me into the clinician that I am today.

 I chose to continue my career in oncology at Fox Chase Cancer Center so that I could work at an academic cancer center with a focus on clinical research. I am proud to work at an institution where I am valued as a member of a multidisciplinary team. My primary focus at Fox Chase is on the care of patients with lung cancers. I work to support my patients through all phases of their cancer journey, focusing not only on treatment but also on the patient as a whole. I am honored to work with patients who continue to inspire me every day.
