• I grew up in Ohio and completed my undergraduate, medical school, and residency training at The Ohio State University. I then went on to complete my fellowship training in gynecologic oncology at UCLA and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. I moved to Birmingham to work at UAB because of the amazing multi-disciplinary cancer care team that we have. The UAB health system and Cancer Center are dedicated to being at the cutting edge of providing high quality and well coordinated cancer care.
  • Research Overview

  • I am interested in studying the out of pocket costs that gynecologic cancer patients face while undergoing diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. These costs can lead patients to experience financial distress and decrease in quality of life.

    I am working to develop ways to provide:
    - universal screening for financial distress
    - improved communication about the anticipated costs of care
    - resources to identify assistance programs and decrease this financial burden on patients
    - education for patients to help them plan and make informed decisions with their health care providers
