  • Background

    As a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner, my role is to coordinate care for children with cancer, provide direct patient care, write chemotherapy and perform oncology procedures (bone marrow aspirates, biopsies, and lumbar punctures). I work most closely providing direct patient care for families and with children who have liquid tumors and retinoblastoma.

    I have a strong interest in educating future nurses and nurse practitioners and often lecture at area universities. I have also presented posters and presented at national conferences. My research interests include the clinical aspects of leukemia and retinoblastoma as well as the educational needs of parents and children with those diseases.
