Every day, patients, physicians and researchers are advancing their understanding of the biology of cancer, right down to the molecules that make up individual cancer cells. This includes learning more about how and why tumors react differently to different treatments. That is why I emphasize the need to tailor treatment to the individual based on his or her unique medical history and needs. In my years of practice, I've found that what works for one patient may not work for others, and I enjoy making those important distinctions and individual plans.

My decisions about patient care have been aided, in part, by my participation in clinical research. What I learn through research yields practical insights into the latest and most effective therapies for all stages of breast cancer. This work has included serving as an investigator in the Southeast Clinical Oncology Research Consortium, which allows patients in rural communities across five states to participate in clinical trials without having to travel hundreds of miles.

I also serve on a committee that seeks to identify best practices for preventing and treating breast cancer by developing and conducting national clinical trials. This work helps me keep informed about the most advanced treatments, so I can help patients whether they are enrolled in clinical trials or not. It was the rapid pace of discovery that first drew me to specialize in treating cancer.

I am a third-generation physician. After growing up in Charlotte, I always dreamed of returning home to treat patients. Today, I am married with two daughters. I enjoy traveling, cooking and spending time at the beach in North Carolina.
