I had a post-op concern and the office staff worked me in for an office visit with Dr. Brownlee THAT VERY DAY, which I very much appreciated. She set me up for a diagnostic mammograph. This may turn out not to be an urgent issue (scar tissue and not a growth mass) but I really appreciate the staff taking my concern seriously.

I have been seeing dr. Brownlee for two years now, and she is the warmest, most caring doctor I’ve ever seen. Having cancer is a scary thing, and she has been with me EVERY step of the way. She always puts me at ease and explains everything so that I can fully understand it. She’s just the best!

Medicine, and oncology specifically, have been a calling for me from a young age. My family has no medical professionals, yet I knew from childhood that a career in medicine was in my future. I have always had a particular interest in the science of oncology and the incredible advancements in cancer treatments that have occurred in the last century. Today, I am a hematology and oncology specialist focusing on the treatment and management of breast and lung cancers.

My colleagues and I believe in a team approach to care. That is why I serve on thoracic and breast tumor site councils and the committee for cancer at Novant Health. This is an opportunity for us to come together with our colleagues to discuss cases, explore treatment options and develop care plans for our patients as a team.

What I love most about oncology is the relationships I develop with my patients and their families. Cancer can often be a long journey, and I consider it an honor to help patients navigate through these challenging times and beyond.

I am originally from Columbia, South Carolina, and did most of my training in my home state at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. After completing my medical training, my husband and I relocated to Charlotte to be close to family. I am happily married to my husband, and we have two boys who are the light of our lives. In my personal time, I enjoy exploring nature with my children, traveling and reading, as well as daily exercise.
