WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

My mother developed breast cancer when I was very young. I watched her bravely undergo chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery all with three young children while working full time. She then became a local survivorship advocate in our community. Her experience positively shaped my future and now, over 20 years later, I have the opportunity to treat women like her. Because of this, I believe I have a unique perspective on the complex challenges that women face while fighting breast cancer. I am motivated to make an impact in the lives of breast cancer patients, their families, and the field in general. Breast cancer is a life-changing and stressful event. I want my patients to find comfort in knowing that I am providing them with the most up-to-date and evidence-based care.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research passion is to investigate new targets and drug therapies for patients with aggressive breast cancers, including triple negative breast cancer, through clinical trials. In most patients with metastatic triple negative breast cancer, chemotherapy is the only approved option. I am committed to finding targeted therapies with less side effects for these women. I am currently interested in immunotherapy combinations, antibody-drug conjugates, and BH3 mimetics.
