I am your partner and advocate for health. You and I work together to explore all reasonable options available for management so that you can make an informed decision that is right for you. I aim to provide top cancer center level care, with the excellent service you deserve.
I enjoy time with family. All three of my children participate in saber fencing at the national level, training with Olympic coach Ed Korfanty in Portland, OR. In my home we speak English, French, Japanese (and most recently, a bit of Italian). I enjoy playing the piano, listening to music, modern art, and international travel, and am a voracious reader. I also enjoy blogging at understandcancerin60minutes, and am the author of numerous books about cancer. I have published in the USA, Taiwan, and Japan, respectively.
