    Biography

    I have been an infusion nurse at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center in clinical affiliation with Milford Regional Medical Center since 2009. I transferred to oncology nursing in 2005 after 23 years as an ER nurse and, prior to that, a nurse in intensive care. This has been a very satisfying transition because it enables me to build a connection with my patients and their families.
