    Biography

    In 1997 I started my career at Dana-Farber in the gastrointestinal oncology group as a new patient coordinator, building my oncology knowledge base over approximately 10 years. During that time I was fortunate to work with amazing nurses who inspired me to go back to nursing school as a second career. After graduating in 2007 from nursing school I worked on a medical/surgical inpatient floor, but always new oncology was my calling. In 2008 I returned to the Dana-Farber by helping open their Londonderry, NH satellite clinic in late 2008 and have been an infusion nurse there ever since. I treat a variety of cancers including solid tumors, hematologic malignancies, and hematologic disorders. I am part of Dana-Farber’s Nurse Practice Committee and currently sit on a committee looking at best practice for prevention of central line access blood stream infection. I am an active member of the Southern NH Oncology Nursing Society and am an advisory board member for my nursing school.
