When asked why she chose Radiation Oncology, she states, "After volunteering for Hospice, I learned how immensely valuable it was to help patients and their families through terminal illness. In medical school, my exposure to radiation oncology taught me that we can use the latest technologies to cure as well as help patients. I cherish the opportunity radiation oncology has given me to utilize my education and interest in technology to deliver the best possible care to my patients while forming life long relationships.
