I initially joined Memorial Sloan Kettering as a clinical nurse. After completing graduate studies in 2013, I became a nurse practitioner.

I have had the privilege of caring for patients through the various stages of transplantation. When I first came to Memorial Sloan Kettering, I worked on the inpatient bone marrow transplant unit where my responsibilities included helping patients and their families during the acute transplant phase. Subsequently I administered chemotherapy and provided pre- and post- transplant care and teaching guidance within the outpatient chemotherapy department.
