Accepting new patients




I am a pediatric oncologist whose career has been driven by the passion for providing the best patient and family-centered care. I came to Children’s Wisconsin as the Director of Clinical Operations to help optimize the entire care model of the MACC Fund Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders with over 25 years of experience in pediatric hematology, oncology and bone marrow transplant. At Children’s Wisconsin, my expertise will be focused on the care of children and young adults with solid tumors and histiocytosis. The bulk of my research has been on addressing the health care disparities faced by adolescents and young adults with cancer, who often find themselves in the gray area between pediatric and adult medical worlds. I intend to continue these efforts at Children’s Wisconsin as well.
