What is your Educational Background?

I sent to school for my medical assistant education at a community college in Michigan.

Why did you choose to work in Healthcare and/or Oncology/Hematology?

My best friend, Christine, is a chemo nurse here. We bonded years ago when our daughters were in competitive cheering and eventually on the high school cheer squad. My friend let me know that there was an opening for a medical assistant and that’s how I arrived at OSC 8 years ago. In total, I have been a medical assistant for 26 years, and I have worked in family and alternative medicine prior to oncology.

Hiking, reading, wine tasting, water sports. I like the water. We live on Lake Norman.

What makes OSC so special?

Our culture of “family” with both staff, patients, and their family members.

  • Transfer care: you are moving into the area and need an oncologist/hematologist, or you are currently under the care of a local oncologist/hematologist and would like to transfer care to one of our physicians
  • 2nd Opinion: you have been diagnosed with cancer or a blood disorder and would like to get a second opinion on the prognosis and treatment course
  • Former patient: if you have not been to the office in 3 years or more, you will need to get a referral sent in by a physician to re-establish care
