About Me

I have been board certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a pediatric nurse practitioner since 2001. I obtained my Bachelor of Science at Rutgers, College of Nursing in 1994, a Master of Science in 2001 and her Doctor of Nursing Practice in 2020. I have served as a clinical adjunct faculty member for Rutgers, School of Nursing from 2015-2018 and have worked in clinical practice with multiple sub-specialties including pediatric nephrology; pediatric gastroenterology; and pediatric infectious disease. Special interests include complementary and integrative therapies. I joined Rutgers Cancer Institute's Pediatric Hematology/Oncology team in 2022 and specialize in vascular anomalies and malformations in the pediatric population. I am a member of the American Society of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology; the Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses, and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

Our Advanced Practice Providers work in collaboration with the physicians in their respective oncology programs and may not always be scheduled directly.
