    Biography

    I have been a nurse practitioner in the Lymphoma practice at Dana-Farber since 2005. I started my nursing career at Boston City Hospital in the oncology rehab unit in 1994 and have treated oncology patients in a number of settings since then, including home care and inpatient at MGH on the bone marrow transplant unit. I believe strongly in providing holistic, multidisciplinary care for patients and their families. I am an active member of the Boston Oncology Nursing Society (BONS) chapter of ONS and currently sit on the Board as Director at Large. I also work on the BONS planning committee.
