Treatment Philosophy

I chose to work at Fox Chase when we relocated to the Philadelphia area in 2007 to continue my career in oncology at an academic cancer Center. I had started my Career at Duke University and wanted to continue to practice at a center that was dedicated to providing quality, up to the minute care.

I spent over 10 years in the breast medical oncology department at Fox Chase working with women who were diagnosed with breast cancer. It is such a rewarding career to work with these incredibly strong women. In 2018 I transitioned from medical oncology to the Department of Clinical genetics and Risk Assessment. I now get to help patients before they are diagnosed with cancer with hopes of preventing it and guide those at an increased risk. There are so many aspects to cancer care, and at Fox Chase we address all of them.
