Philosophy of Care

Being diagnosed with cancer can bring new worries, physical concerns, or questions about the future. I strive to improve my patients’ quality of life by collaborating with the entire care team to relieve symptoms, provide support, and assist with making plans for future care. I am honored to be a part of this team.


In my spare time, I enjoy exploring local parks and walking trails with my husband and two daughters.  We also enjoy cooking together with locally sourced food from our CSA and farmer’s markets.
