I am a family nurse practitioner (NP) on the Integrative Medicine Service, where I work with patients with various types of cancer, as well as patients who have survived cancer. My career at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) began in 2012, when I started working as both a melanoma research and melanoma office NP. Prior to joining MSK, I practiced in various clinical, critical care, and nursing research settings at institutions including Massachusetts General Hospital and Hackensack University Cancer Center, as well as primary care urgent care clinics.
My lifelong passion for holistic approaches in medicine led me to a two-year fellowship in integrative medicine at the University of Arizona in Tucson, directed by Dr. Andrew Weil, the pioneer of integrative medicine. I followed this learning experience with a certification for yoga instruction from the Kripalu Center for Yoga in Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
It is a privilege and an honor to provide comprehensive integrative medicine with a holistic approach to symptomatic care and overall wellness for patients affected by cancer. I value the opportunity to be a part of their personal treatment journeys.
