I am currently working with people being cared for by our Leukemia and Geriatrics teams. I received a Masters in Social Work from Boston University School of Social Work in 2015 and joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2019. I have worked in hospice and palliative care, specializing in end-of-life care in long-term care settings with the older adult population. I am particularly interested in researching how healthcare systems can better support adults and their caregivers in maintaining quality of life while facing serious illnesses. In addition, I help with education related to end-of-life planning, anticipatory grief, and caregiver stress and fatigue.
