Breast Health Navigator
“I was drawn to breast oncology especially because I have always loved women’s health — that has been my niche since day one. To me, there is nothing better than to get to work with these patients in an outpatient setting because it puts me in a situation to see them, not only when they're feeling sick, but many times, when they're feeling very well. We see each other on a regular basis, and in this setting, we have the opportunity to develop a friendship. I really get to know the person for who they are, their family, how many kids they have, their latest vacation plans, and the pictures — oh! the pictures you get to share!”
