The diagnosis of cancer is a pivotal time for patients and their families to assess their wellbeing and make informed treatment decisions. I am an advanced practice RN with over 42 years of clinical nursing experience. Throughout my nursing career, I have been honored to work with children, adolescents, adults and multigenerational families as they navigated the intense struggles and wonderful successes of life threatening health challenges, especially related to the diagnoses of cancer. I specialize in a patient centered, integrative, evidence informed approach to cancer care, including information about nutrition, supplements, off-label medications, lifestyle, conventional and alternative treatment options. I am passionate about meeting with patients and their loved ones to provide a knowledgeable, supportive, compassionate, and hopeful perspective.
I am a registered nurse for over 30 years. I am an experienced integrative oncology nurse and cancer coach. I have specialized training and experience in the use of medical cannabis, and thorough knowledge of the safe use of supplements and off-label medications in the oncology setting. My passion is helping people with cancer become empowered to take control of their health and treatment, to achieve well-being and the best possible health outcomes.
RN MS, CSN
I’m a Registered Nurse with more than 16 years of nursing experience, specializing in Oncology, Hospice, and Palliative Care. I focus on optimizing conventional protocols and integrative care options, with a special emphasis on the use of supplements and medicinal cannabis, both for symptom control and the active treatment of chronic diseases.
I specialize in providing consultations for clients with advanced needs, complicated protocols, or treatment-resistant diseases.
I can help you understand the confusing medical and scientific terminology and help you develop a researched care plan to review with your doctor.
As a Registered Nurse for 27 years, I have supported patients and their families in a variety of settings, from the hospital to home care and everywhere in between, with a compassionate, spiritual, holistic, and patient-centered approach throughout the trajectory of their cancer treatment. Certified in both Palliative and Hospice levels of care, I have assisted patients and their families in navigating standard-of-care treatments, as well as alternative choices from diagnosis to no evidence of disease.
My experience as an Oncology Nurse navigator has allowed me to assist patients through many different treatment options, including the use of supplements, repurposed medications, nutritional options, and lifestyle changes to optimize the possibility of a positive outcome.
In addition to my nursing qualifications, I am a Reiki Master- Teacher, which provides a touch of spirituality to all my patient interactions
