"Being able to help the families who face childhood cancer in any way gives me reason to come to work. This ranges from watching over their progress overnights, to adding some humor to their difficult trek. I also enjoy teaching and working with residents, helping with admissions, and assisting with nursing concerns. "

  • I grew up on a farm in Colorado, went to Brigham Young University, and then to the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.  My Pediatric residency was at Fitzsimons Army Medical Center and my Heme/Onc Fellowship was at the University of Utah and Primary Children’s hospital.  I spend 30 years with the military taking care of children with cancer and doing some general pediatrics and was chief of Pediatrics at Madigan Army Medical Center for 5 years. I joined Seattle Children’s Hospital in 2011 as an Acute Care Oncologist.
