I am honored to be a member of the UT Cancer Institute. I am committed to providing excellence in the comprehensive oncologic treatment of every patient. When I first meet a patient, I believe in educating the individual and their family member(s) on their diagnostic and treatment history thus far. I then apply that context to explain possible treatment options moving forward. I believe that patients are empowered by their knowledge and involvement in the medical decision making process, and this allows patients to fully invest in the treatment plan and realize best possible treatment outcomes. Quite simply, I care. I strive for the best cancer-related outcomes for each patient. In my time outside of the Cancer Institute, I love living in East Tennessee and exploring the Smoky Mountains with my husband and three children.
