My clinical practice is dedicated to the multidisciplinary care of breast disease including benign diseases, DCIS, and invasive cancer. I also perform axillary surgery including sentinel lymph node dissection, axillary dissection, and targeted axillary dissection. I utilize oncoplastic techniques including breast conserving surgery and nipple sparing mastectomy.

My research interests include evaluating outcome measures that are important to patients, such as psychosocial and physical well-being, throughout the course of treatment and recovery in an effort to provide high quality, patient-centered care.

My goal is to advance breast cancer care through clinical research and continuous process improvement.
