Clinical Interests
I am a fellowship trained surgical oncologist who has particular interest in difficult wound management. These wounds may be the result of cancer, cancer treatment, or a non-cancer cause.

Care Philosophy
A wound that won't heal may be painful, difficult to manage, and interfere with daily activities. It is always frustrating. I strive to help patients with wounds understand their disease and treatment options, as well as connect with them on a more personal level to help them feel that they are in a safe and caring treatment environment.

Personal Interests
Outside of the hospital I enjoy spending time with family, travelling, knitting and weaving.
