I speak: English
My gender: Female
Where I practice
I consider it an honor and a privilege to work in medicine. I hold a doctorate (PhD) in pharmacology as well as my medical degree, both from Yale University. Since graduating from medical school, I focused my practice on caring solely for cancer patients, training at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and then specializing in radiation oncology at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF).
As a scientist, I have led projects in cancer research at many levels, from the laboratory bench to clinical trials. I have published papers in numerous scientific journals, presented my findings at international conferences and have received several prestigious awards including the American Society for Clinical Oncology Young Investigator Award (ASCO YIA), the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Basic Science Abstract Award, and the ASCO/American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Workshop for Methods in Clinical Cancer Research (Vail).
About my practice
The Radiation Oncology Department at Kaiser Permanente is excellent. We have an outstandingly caring staff who believe in providing high-quality care to patients, in a compassionate and timely manner.
In my practice, I combine my clinical training with my background as a scientist: I provide evidence-based approaches to cancer care, incorporating the latest cancer research into personalized therapies for our members. I believe in explaining the treatment options to patients, so they can make informed decisions about their care. I treat patients with a multitude of radiation techniques, with a special focus on radiosurgery, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS/SBRT), and image-guided/intensity modulated radiation therapy (IGRT/IMRT).
I am inspired by the many new scientific advances in cancer research, and I will be working on clinical trials in oncology at Kaiser Permanente as well.
How I thrive
Outside of work, I love spending time with friends and family. My hobbies include gourmet cooking, hiking, photography, and learning about different cultures by traveling internationally.
