About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

After serving 6 years in the United States Navy as a nuclear engineer on fast attack submarine, I wanted to use my training to care for oncology patients. Little did I know, that in 2003, I would be diagnosed with testicular cancer. I was diagnosed very early stage, had surgery and radiation. I have been a cancer survivor for 16 years. Having been diagnosed and treated for cancer, has helped me to better understand the many challenges that cancer patients may experience during their journey.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I am a very compassionate and empathetic nurse practitioner who provides oncology care to not only the patient but the entire family as every one is affected by cancer. At WellSpan Ephrata Cancer Center, the entire staff has created a triage program for cancer patients with acute care needs but don't have an appointment on Monday-Friday. Call in with a concern and we will see you that day. Together our board certified oncology nurses, physicians and I treat with compassionate evidence based medicine based on guidelines from CDC and NCCN.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

Spending time with my wife and my 3 children which includes a set of twins. I am involved with Salsa Latin Dance studio as a student and as a performer.
