“I chose to pursue the field of oncology because it gave me the opportunity to help and change the lives of people with cancer. I am compelled to cancer care, as my patients inspire me to change my community, one person at a time. I strive to take the role of a caring teacher and resource for you and your family, and I hope to provide balance, courage, and safety throughout your entire cancer journey. I ensure that every appointment is guided with a calm and supportive environment, and hope to offer realistic hope for the future.”
