I provide and coordinate clinical care for children undergoing blood and marrow transplant. I especially enjoy helping children and families through their inpatient stay as well as preparing them to be comfortable caring for their child once they are discharged. Over the 10 years that I have worked in pediatric oncology, I have really enjoyed my interactions with individual children and their families.

I have presented the following posters at national conferences:

  • Innovative Teaching Strategies for the Novice and Advanced BMT nurse
  • Discharge Planning on 3C/3S Extending Good Practices
