Nurse Practitioner
A nurse practitioner is extensively trained to treat illness or disease and to prescribe medication to their patients. They work on teams with a licensed physician, but can treat patients with significant autonomy. Nurse practitioners work in a variety of settings, including primary care and various other medical and surgical specialties.

I am a nurse practitioner in the Department of Neurological Surgery, where I treat patients who need or are recovering from neurosurgery. Some of the conditions and disorders that I specialize in include gliomas, hemangioblastomas, cancerous tumors of the spine, Von Hippel-Lindau disease, Chiari malformations and metastatic lesions of the central nervous system.

The James is a world-class medical center that features outstanding innovation, research initiatives and a high level of training and competency among all of its employees. I really enjoy the sense of teamwork and patient-centered focus that it provides. This allows me to create a strong partnership with my patients so that we may work together for the ultimate benefit of their health and wellbeing.

I am passionate about helping my patients achieve the best possible surgical outcome through preoperative planning and personalized postoperative care. I also work closely with numerous research projects to help facilitate the work that will someday bring about a cure for cancer.
