About Me

I am a nurse practitioner with over 20 years of professional nursing experience, including more than 10 years in palliative medicine. I received my master’s degree in nursing from Andrews University in Indiana and have worked at the OSUCCC – James since 2014, initially as a member of the Division of Hematology before joining the Palliative Medicine team two years later.

Instead of specializing in any one cancer type, we manage disease- and treatment-related symptoms of all oncology/hematology patients using a team-based approach. We also strive to treat the “whole person,” which doesn’t just include a patient’s physical symptoms but also the emotional component of coping with cancer and their spiritual needs as well.

It’s a privilege to work with our patients and their families during one of the most vulnerable times of their lives, and I truly feel like we make a difference here at The James. The hospital delivers top-notch care – from the physicians to the groundskeepers – and everyone is focused on the same goal: to ensure that all of our cancer patients feel as comfortable as possible while they’re here.

In addition to my work at The James, I am a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the Oncology Nursing Society. I have also contributed to several books about palliative medicine, including “End of Life Care – Clinical Practice Guidelines,” “Palliative Care Guidelines from A-Z” and “Palliative Practices: An Interdisciplinary Approach.”
