I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 1989 and became director of our social work department in 2013. I worked for many years with women with gynecological and breast cancer. I have a particular interest in cancer survivorship and in cultivating resilience in oncology staff. I graduated from the New York University Silver School of Social Work and received my PhD at Yeshiva University.
