I am originally from Scranton Pennsylvania and did my undergraduate work at Cornell University majoring in both Biology and Classic Civilizations. I completed the MD/PhD Program and did my medical internship at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia then relocated to the Bay Area to train here at Stanford. I’m passionate about translational cancer research as well as patient-centered care, advocacy and survivorship for cancer patients. Outside of work, my hobbies include reading and writing science fiction, experimenting with cooking vegan recipes, spending time with my family (including my 2 dogs, both Belgian Malinois), jogging and enjoying what the Bay Area has to offer (hiking, beaches, culinary scene and wine-tasting to name a few).
