Make an Appointment


I joined the OSUCCC – James as a breast medical oncologist in 2006 and have since been very active in clinical and translational research in breast cancer. I am a principal investigator for several cooperative group and investigator-initiated studies, and have authored more than 40 peer-reviewed articles published in scientific journals.

My research focuses on investigating the biology of breast tumors at the molecular level to identify characteristics of tumors that are resistant to hormone-based therapeutics, such as tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors. With this information, researchers can develop alternative therapies to treat hormone-resistant tumors.

I have been recognized by The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for being in the top 10 percent nationally for patient satisfaction for the past eight years. I received the Stellar Practitioner for Compassionate Care Recognition from patients and caregivers as an exceptional physician. I was also selected as one of five women at Ohio State who distinguished themselves as “Medical Center Marvels,” and I was featured in Health1 magazine. In 2017, I was named to the Forbes Honor Roll for breast oncology.

In addition to treating patients, I serve as academic chief of the Breast Oncology Section and as director of the Medical Oncology Fellowship Program in Breast Cancer for the Ohio State College of Medicine.
