Care Philosophy

When I was little, my dad (who is a physician) took my brother and I on hospital rounds. I think based on that experience -at the ripe age of 6- I announced to my parents that I was going to be a doctor. Throughout high school and undergrad, he took me to the local Tumor Board meeting. I thought the entire aspect of oncology was fascinating but wasn’t sure I would be able to support patients with potential for such intense grief and loss. I then chose a medical oncologist as my clinical preceptor during the first two years of medical school. I fell in love with the patients and the relationship he the oncologist was able to develop with the patient and their families. Once I was in internal medicine residency at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, I was able to rotate on the BMT service and again things clicked. I was a matched for fellowship in Denver and decided to enjoy seasons as well as the fantastic life Colorado has to offer. As a physician specializing in blood cancers and blood/marrow transplant, I have the opportunity to offer patients potential cures from their cancer or live with their disease and not die from it. I love participating in research, but being with patients is what drives me. I’m so fortunate to have found CBCI where I can do both. I’ve been on both sides of cancer as my mother passed from acute leukemia and I strive to be the doctor she and my family needed blending medical expertise and matching that with patient goals and quality of life. I believe that patients place an amazing amount of trust in their oncologist to guide them through their treatments. My goal is to earn that trust being not only a doctor, but a teacher as well. I work to ensure my patients understand their disease and treatments. I strive to ensure I understand a patient’s goals and fears and help guide treatment decisions that honor those values.
