About Me

I am an Assistant Professor with the Cancer Patient Support and Psychosocial Oncology Programs. I received a BS in Cognitive Studies and Spanish Literature from Vanderbilt University, a MA in Community Counseling from the University of Texas at San Antonio as well as a MA in History from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and a PhD from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in Counseling and Counselor Education. I completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Psychosocial Oncology at Wake Forest Baptist Health.

My clinical and research interests include adjustment to chronic health conditions, maternal health, including pregnancy in cancer care, young adult survivorship, sleep quality, fertility, end of life care, and existentialism. I work primarily with the stem cell transplant service and enjoys multidisciplinary care as well as long term relationship establishment with clients. I have a strong interest in both clinical and archival research.
