1. What is your specialty?
I am fellowship-trained in surgical oncology with a breast subspecialty.

2. Why did you want to become a physician?
The desire to combine my love for people with my love for the sciences made being a physician a perfect fit for me. Learning and applying my knowledge of science to patient care is most gratifying.

3. What is one aspect of the job that you find rewarding?
Helping my patients realize that they are not alone in their journey and working with them to put a plan in place to ease, if not remedy, the problem is most rewarding.

4. In your opinion, what’s the future of your field?
I see the future of breast surgical oncology as one that turns breast cancer into a curable disease for most, if not all. Metastatic breast cancer will be something that women live with instead of die from. I look forward to a future where the incidence of new breast cancers and death from breast cancer decrease across the board.

5. What do you do to achieve work/life balance?
To achieve work/life balance, I stay close to my family and care for my dogs. I travel when I can. I enjoy singing, gardening, and cooking. My work is an integral part of my life. I believe it was Confucius who said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
