“As a nurse, I worked on an oncology floor treating patients with lymphoma and leukemia. The patients’ hospitalization would often last weeks, and I would form close relationships with both the patient and their families, which I previously had not had in my nursing career. It fostered my passion for caring for people throughout treatment in a systematic fashion. As a nurse practitioner, I continue to enjoy making a very difficult time in a person’s life that much easier. I look forward to developing a close relationship with you and assisting you in your fight. My goal is to bring patience and kindness to your care.”
