I am a clinical social worker certified in oncology, with a special focus on palliative and end of life care. I have many years of experience in medical social work in hospital and ambulatory care settings. I graduated from the New York University Silver School of Social Work and joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2016. As an inpatient social worker I currently work with patients and families being treated by the neurology, neurosurgery, and orthopedic services, as well as patients in MSK’s Urgent Care Center and clinical decision unit. I provide psychosocial support to patients and their families, assist with practical needs and concerns, and coordinate community referrals.
