Since I was very young, I wanted to pursue a career in medicine.  As a young girl, I was a “candy striper” in the hospital where my mother worked as a physician.  I am very proud to say that she retired as a Captain after serving 22 years in the United States Navy.  As a candy striper volunteer, I found that comforting the patients was extremely rewarding for me.  As a physician my mom was very well-respected, responsible, and dedicated.  My grandmother was a dentist and aunts and uncles were also physicians.  And so, I was exposed very early to medicine during my childhood.

In high school, I discovered that I had an interest in the sciences.  I  was inspired by a biology teacher.  During college I loved working with microscopes and learning about blood cells.  I entered the pre-med program at Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY, pursuing a biology/psychology major.  There, I became interested in the pathology and the genetic aspects of cancer.  After graduating, I attended the American University of the Caribbean and completed my medical school clinical rotations in Colchester, England.  My new home for the next three years was in Danbury, CT, for Internal Medicine training at Danbury Hospital.  I then completed my Hematology/Oncology fellowship at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Boston, MA.

I was with Syracuse Hematology/Oncology, P.C. for more than 10 years until we integrated our practice with HOA in 2008.  The community of HOA consists of a wonderful team of care givers.  I feel that HOA represents the “future of medicine” with everything on-site, oncology, radiation oncology, radiology/ diagnostics, as well as complementary services to address both physical and mental needs of our patients.

Through it all, the biggest lessons I have learned are lessons in family dynamics.  A tremendous part of effective, compassionate care is to care for the patient’s whole family.  I have also learned that day-to-day stressors are less important than they used to be.  As life can be so fleeting, today is the day to do things.  I de-stress as much as possible by spending time with my husband and my two step-sons, Connor, and Zachary, as we reside in our home in Auburn, NY.
