About

Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner

Treatment Philosophy

I provide survivorship care to gynecologic oncology patients, as well as patients from other disciplines who need gynecologic follow up. I see women with pre-invasive cervical lesions in my colposcopy clinic, and care for women with a genetic predisposition and/or family history of cancer. I also serve as the oncofertility coordinator for Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Additionally, I serve as the co-chair of the Nursing Education Advisory Committee at Fox Chase, and I have lectured nationally on issues that include fertility preservation, survivorship and ovarian cancer.
