What drew you to your specialty? After 14 years as an inpatient oncology nurse, I dreamt of being a health care provider who brought to the bedside only comfort, relief from pain, healing, and wellness. Integrative medicine is the answer to that dream.

Favorite part of your job: Seeing a patient's face transform from discomfort and/or stress to comfort and ease. Having the opportunity to continue to learn and apply the knowledge in clinical practice. Being a part of the Mass General care team.

What you’d like to tell patients/family members about integrative therapies/your specialty: Never give up on your health and your quality of life, regardless of what you might be enduring from a medical point of view. Both can always be improved- let us show you how.
