WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a doctor and researcher who specializes in bone marrow transplants. Patients usually come to me after their cancer treatment has been unsuccessful or when their disease is high-risk and may require further care. When I first see a patient, it is important for me to hear their story, the history of their condition and their treatment goals. This information is important so we can decide, together, which treatments to pursue and to what degree. For me, it is a privilege to get to know where people come from and to help families through their difficult time. I grew up working in a restaurant, so I was exposed to serving the public at an early age. As I became educated, I decided that I wanted to help others in a different capacity, so I pursued medicine. Outside of work, I like spending time enjoying nature and the beauty of North Carolina with my children and husband.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I head a laboratory that focuses on the development of chronic graft versus host disease. Our major objective is to understand this important transplant toxicity so that we can bring novel therapeutic and preventative agents to patients. I am very interested in developing novel small molecule and cellular immune therapies for blood and lymph node cancers (leukemia and lymphomas). Our hope is that our work will lead to safer, more effective bone marrow transplants for patients.
