Why did you go into cancer care?
When I was a teenager my father was diagnosed with Lymphoma. I was very involved in helping with his care especially at the end of his life. Even at a young age I always thought the nurses and doctors taking care of him worked so well together and had so much compassion toward families and patients. I knew then that I wanted to someday be part of this special team of caregivers.
What makes the Tufts Cancer Center special?
The employees at Tufts who really care about the patients.
Tell us one interesting fact about yourself.
I love to bake. I order a quart of Vanilla at least once a year. At Christmas time I use about 20 lbs of butter to bake cookies for family and friends.
