- Per Diem
Advanced Practice Nurse with Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey for over 10 years with 15 years of Oncology experience, 5 years specializing in Hematologic Malignancies. Graduated with honors from Muhlenberg School of Nursing in 2006 and Rutgers in 2016 for Masters.
I have worked in various health systems, inpatient and outpatient, as a nurse and charge nurse before becoming an APN. As an APN, I continue to learn in Hematology Oncology, Bone Marrow Transplant and Clinical Trials.
I work specifically with Hematology Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant population assessing the physical and psychosocial status of clients by means of interview, health history, physical examination, and diagnostic studies. I assist in determining eligibility and plan of care of patients for clinical trials based on findings. I also participate in multidisciplinary rounds and ensure appropriate and quality care for assigned patients, in addition to maintaining provision of preventive health services.
Our Advanced Practice Providers work in collaboration with the physicians in their respective oncology programs and may not always be scheduled directly.

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.
