    Biography

    I have been a nurse at Dana-Farber for nearly 29 years. I started as a staff nurse in 1982 and worked at the bedside for 14 years. Since then, I have had several nursing roles including infusion, research, radiation and then back to research. I am presently a research nurse in the Breast Oncology Center. I feel fortunate to have been able to experience these roles and have gained so much from each one. It is a privilege to care for cancer patients and their families and to work with such amazing staff.
