“I joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America in 2007 inspired by the courageous people who choose to fight cancer and the compassionate team of caregivers who walk with them through their journey. My keen understanding of the unique needs of cancer patients comes from my childhood observations and losing a favorite Aunt Becky. She is the reason I chose the healthcare field. I learned from her to search for the best medical team in any situation, no matter where it takes you, and our patients inspire me every day as they travel from all over the country seeking medical excellence at CTCA. It is my privilege to fight side by side with our patients and their families.”
