What is your name?
What is your role at OSC?
Patient Care Representative
Where are you from originally?
Blairstown, New Jersey. It is located near the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania. After taking care of my grandmother for 2 years of her illness, I moved down to Charlotte in 2008 after her passing.
Why did you choose to work in Healthcare and/or Oncology/Hematology?
I had a friend who worked in the medical field and her practice had an opening. I have since worked in medical for internal medicine, pediatrics, dermatology, gastroenterology, and now my path has led me to oncology. Oncology is personal to me and I can now see the patients point of view. My sister Michelle was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer in 2013. Her amazing strength and 26-month battle can be viewed online as she did a documentary with a media company on her journey that received national recognition. This is a beautiful story of a beautiful life lived. Please view here: Michelle’s Story
