"I enjoy being part of a multidisciplinary team with a shared purpose: supporting patients and families as they navigate the stem cell transplant process, presenting complex clinical information as clearly as possible, for patients and families to have the tools to understand their medical condition and make decisions about care. Working with infants to young adults continues to inspire and amaze with their ability to endure, recover and adapt. There is nothing more thrilling than seeing treated patients accomplish milestones following a life altering diagnosis. "

  • I am a board-certified physician assistant who specializes in caring for infants, children and young adults who have undergone blood or bone marrow transplantation.

    My first experience with blood and marrow transplant medicine was back in the early 2000s, when I worked with the long-term follow-up team at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Developing a rapport with patients, caregivers and clinicians from all over the U.S. and beyond, helping coordinate post-transplant care and complications that arose following treatment. After obtaining a physician assistant degree, it seemed like a natural fit to return to the Hutch and continue working in this field. Patients and families moving through a stem cell transplant, experience an extraordinary challenging complex process, physically and emotionally; it’s a privilege to help guide and walk with them through their treatment journey and beyond.
