Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I have been a clinical nurse for nearly a decade. I served in both clinical and administrative capacities throughout my career and I hold a Master’s degree in Nursing with a focus in Executive Leadership. As a staff nurse, nurse leader and quality improvement specialist, I led multidisciplinary teams in various academic medical settings throughout Boston, New York and Ohio to provide high quality care to patients with cancer.

My role as a health care provider transitioned when I was expecting my first child in the summer of 2020. Six weeks following the birth of my daughter, I was diagnosed with metastatic thyroid cancer. My background in nursing helped me understand the diagnosis and ask the right questions to get the care I needed and deserved. I knew I could help patients and families have the same support and resources to understand their cancer and their options. So I created a program and found her own team of experts, The Cancer Team.

Having cancer, or any illness for that matter, affects the entire family. I want to be that extended family for them, to guide them in their journey through cancer and every day after.
