• Director, Pediatric Oncology Nursing and Clinical Services, Dana-Farber
    Director, Nursing/Patient Services, Pediatric Oncology/Hematology/Stem Cell Transplant, Children’s Hospital Boston

I have been an oncology nurse at the Dana-Farber/Children’s Hospital Cancer Center (DF/CHCC) for almost 30 years. I was an oncology staff nurse for 10 years and am presently the nurse director of the inpatient Hematology/Oncology/Stem Cell Transplant program at Children’s Hospital Boston and the outpatient Jimmy Fund Clinic at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. I’ve also worked to develop the DF/CHCC Oncology Community Outreach Program that involves the Back to School Program, a Hospital to Home visit from a dedicated DF/CHCC staff nurse visiting all eligible newly diagnosed patients and community education to homecare agencies. During the last few years, I have been involved in global health and am the nurse advisor and educator to the Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt and National Guard Hospital in Saudi Arabia. Most recently I am participating in the DFCI/ Partners in Health oncology education and training efforts in Rwanda
