Professional Statement

I was drawn to gynecologic oncology for the opportunity to care for women across the cancer care continuum for women with cancers of the ovary and fallopian tube, sarcomas and endometrial cancers of the uterus, and cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancers. As a gynecologic oncologist, I provide surgery and chemotherapy for patients, and I work closely with radiation oncologists, surgical colleagues, and a whole team of pharmacists, nurses, and medical assistants to make care as seamless as possible. In addition to clinical care, I have participated in developing guidelines for the use of heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy for ovarian cancers and research interviewing women with advanced ovarian cancers to compile patterns in patient concerns that could be addressed more frequently in a patient-physician relationship. My goal is always to partner with patients and their families find the option that is most suited to their diagnosis and goals, especially as they may change over time.
