About Me

I am a medical oncologist specializing in bone and soft tissue cancers called sarcomas. Sarcomas occur throughout the body, so I collaborate closely with colleagues from other specialties in a multidisciplinary team. I view my role in caring for someone's cancer as as privilege and strive to work together with each patient to ensure the best treatment decisions are made, all the while embracing each person's uniqueness as an individual. I see adult patients of all ages, but have a particular interest in the unique challenges facing a young adults with cancer. When I'm not working, you can find me exploring the outdoors with my family, traveling, and cooking.
