I am a medical oncologist who specializes in treating breast cancer. I treat patients in all stages of the disease. My clinical practice is dedicated to providing personalized care combined with the latest advances in breast cancer and survivorship.

My research focuses on improving long-term outcomes for breast cancer patients who have developed side effects associated with treatment, and on investigating novel blood-based biomarkers to identify recurrence and treatment toxicity earlier. I have also received grants to evaluate joint pains related to aromatase therapy, and grants to study a chemotherapy-induced cognitive dysfunction (or “chemo” brain) and clinical trials to find new drugs that will prevent or lessen this condition.

I am a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, and I also completed fellowships at Ohio State in medical oncology and breast oncology that were designed to train clinical translational investigators.

I was awarded the highest outpatient satisfaction in the Division of Medical Oncology in 2013. In addition, I direct the Breast Cancer Survivorship Program at the OSUCCC – James’ Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center, and I hold positions on national committees for symptom management and survivorship.
