I am a medical oncologist who specializes in treating gynecologic cancers. I have an expertise in caring for women with ovarian cancer, uterine (endometrial) cancer, and cervical cancer. I am part of a team of experts, including surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and nurses. We are dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate, and personalized care for women with these cancers.

Like so many people, I too have been personally impacted by cancer in close family and friends. My experiences led me to pursue a career in medical oncology. Now, they motivate me each day as I do everything I can to help my patients.

My research focuses on understanding the genetic and immunologic basis of cancer. I am especially dedicated to studying personalized immunotherapy approaches. These include cancer vaccines and oncolytic viruses. I am actively involved in developing early-phase clinical trials to evaluate new immunotherapy treatments for gynecologic cancers. In addition to being part of the Gynecologic Medical Oncology Service, I have a joint appointment to the Immune Therapy Clinic. I have received research funding from the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Association for Cancer Research.

Women who are diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer often take on a tremendous amount of information, stress, and added responsibility on top of their already busy lives. I am committed to helping my patients and their families deal with the medical as well as emotional issues related to a cancer diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and survival. After our clinic visits, I hope my patients feel more confident and reassured as we work together toward the best treatment plan. As their medical oncologist, I want my patients to know I am their advocate, and through my care, hope to relieve some of the burden of their cancer diagnosis.
