About Me

I received my bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the University of Scranton and began my career as a nurse on an inpatient hematology/oncology unit. After several years I made the transition to outpatient oncology care while completing my master’s degree at Seton Hall University. I am board certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. I consider it a privilege to care for oncology patients and am very proud to be a part of an excellent team of providers at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.

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


Accepted Health Plan information is only as accurate as the most current information submitted. Prior to your appointment, it is advisable to verify with your insurance company they are still a participating plan prior to receiving services or care. Each plan is different and some provide different levels of coverage that could make a difference in your out-of-pocket costs. It is always best for the patient receiving care to contact their insurance company to obtain more information.
