About

Biography

As a hematology and oncology specialist and a bone marrow transplant specialist, I look at my patients as whole beings. My approach is to be at the center of a patient’s care – from providing medical treatment to offering resources about nutrition, psychological aspects of care and medication concerns.

I came from a family in rural Texas that often did not have access to good medical care. This experience was a driving force for my desire to bring complete healthcare to my patients. I want to help patients and families along their journey, as the process can be long with many challenges.

For my work with garment factory workers in Bangladesh, I was proud to be inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society. This honor was given to me by my medical school in San Antonio, Texas.

In my research, I focus on quality improvements after bone marrow transplants. This includes projects to prevent weight-loss, minimize central line duration and evaluate how to deliver more patient-focused care.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my two young children and going for walks with my dog.
