Practice Philosophy: I have been an oncology nurse practitioner for the past fifteen years, in a specialty that is ever-evolving and this is what I love about my area of practice. While our job is to care for individuals facing the end of their life we also help people survive cancer. A very important piece of oncology care is helping these survivors through the period of transition when treatment has completed. Through my clinical practice and doctoral research, I hope to contribute to our understanding of the needs of these patients and to design better programs to meet the needs of the many survivors we will care for in the future. I also hope to help educate the next generation of nurses and help Spokane build a top notch health science program.
