I am a clinical fellow in the Division of Oncology, with a focus on adolescent/young adult oncology and solid tumors. I received my Honors BSc in Life Sciences from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario; my MSc in Immunology from the University of Oxford; and my MD from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I spent the next nine years at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. After three years of general surgery training, I transferred into and completed my pediatrics residency and a subsequent fellowship in pediatric hematology/oncology. My clinical and research interests include adolescent/young adult oncology, solid tumors, early phase trials and medical humanities/patient narratives.
I was drawn to this specialty by the bravery, strength and resilience of pediatric cancer patients and their families. I value a patient and family-centered approach and strive to provide excellent clinical care.
