    Biography

    I have been an oncology nurse since I graduated from the Newton Wellesley Hospital School of Nursing. At that time I moved to New York City to work at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.  Since 1989 I have worked in the pediatric program at Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center in both outpatient and inpatient settings. I have served in several capacities: staff nurse, clinical nurse specialist, and interim nurse manager in the Jimmy Fund Clinic. In 2010 I made a career change and moved into the adult program and am currently working on Yawkey 9 infusion.
