Bio


I have had the benefit of a breadth of experience in my career as a physician assistant, beginning in rural family practice and spanning internal medicine and GI surgery. I have worked at three outstanding university settings in GI surgery and feel fortunate to have found this position in Surgical Oncology and HPB (Hepatic, Pancreatic and Biliary) Surgery at Stanford Healthcare where I have worked since 2011. In 2016, I joined the APP Leadership team as a Lead APP for the GI Oncology, Sarcoma and Phase I groups.
