I am a nurse practitioner in Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s Department of Neurosurgery. After beginning my career at the NewYork-Presbyterian Och Spine Hospital, I went on to pursue my Master of Science in nursing at SUNY Downstate College of Medicine. While working toward the completion of my master’s degree, I became certified as a medical surgery nurse and as a progressive care nurse. Once I received my graduate degree and certification as a family nurse practitioner, I brought my passion for neurosurgery to the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center. During my training there, I developed an interest in oncology that would ultimately lead me to my current role here at MSK.
