WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a radiation oncologist at the Duke Cancer Institute. I greatly enjoy getting to know my patients and their families through our weekly visits during radiation treatment and ongoing follow-up. I take a whole person approach to patient care and strive to remind people that they are not defined by their diagnosis. I appreciate engaging in a multi-disciplinary team approach at Duke and partnering with my patients to achieve high-quality and compassionate care. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and walking through the ever-changing streets of Durham with my two small dogs, Cassie and Heidi.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am actively engaged in preclinical, translational and clinical research related to head and neck cancer. In the laboratory, I am working to develop new mouse models of oral cavity cancer and to understand the interactions between radiation therapy and immunotherapy. I am also involved in a clinical trial assessing a novel drug with the goal of reducing side effects related to radiation treatment. Finally, I am the radiation oncology principal investigator for SU2C-SARC032, a clinical trial investigating the combination of the immune checkpoint inhibitor pembrolizumab (anti-PD-1 antibody) and radiation therapy for patients with high-risk soft tissue sarcoma of the extremity.
