I am a women’s health nurse practitioner in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at The James. While working as a registered nurse at the OSUCCC – James, I returned to The Ohio State University to continue my education and obtain my master’s degree in nursing. This has allowed me to be even more involved with my patients, providing care to women diagnosed with gynecologic cancers from diagnosis to survivorship.
I have worked in oncology for several years and find it important to get to know patients and what makes them unique outside of their health care needs. I also like to involve their families and support system. I recognize that a cancer diagnosis can turn someone’s life upside down and consider this when providing care to each patient. My favorite parts of my career include patient education, managing symptoms from chemotherapy treatment and supporting patients while healing from surgery.
Cancer care really does “take a village,” and at The James, there are many disciplines all working together to provide patients with great care. The OSUCCC – James is a big institution, but the sense of community and the team environment make it seem much smaller. I enjoy working with my colleagues to make sure each individuals’ health care needs are met, and I especially like working with our research staff and learning about the new therapies available to our patients. It’s amazing to see how much has changed in cancer care over the last couple of years, and I am excited to see what the future holds.
The overall patient satisfaction rating is an average of all patient responses to the five questions gathered from the Outpatient Oncology survey, developed by Press Ganey Associates for use in oncology clinics across the country. On behalf of The James, Press Ganey administers the survey to patients who see our providers in an outpatient clinic office.
