Clinical Interest for Patients: I am a fellowship trained surgical oncologist who has further focused my clinical activities in breast cancer and breast disease.

General Information
Gender: Female
Language: English
Care Philosophy: Women and men are particularly frightened and vulnerable around the time of a breast cancer diagnosis. I strive to help them understand their disease and treatment options, as well as connect with them on a more personal level to help them feel that they are in a safe and caring treatment environment.
Personal Interests: Outside of the hospital I enjoy spending time with family, travelling, knitting and weaving.
