Philosophy
A diagnosis of cancer presents each patient with complex decisions. I feel very privileged to be able to help guide and inform my patients, as we decide together, on the best approach using the most current knowledge and experience available. Although my goal for each of my patients is to provide the greatest chance for cure or long lasting remission, I also value the importance of minimizing the long-term impact of therapy on patients' well-being.
Personal Information
My husband and I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1992 from Minnesota, where we were both on staff at the Mayo Clinic.
