Patient Care Philosophy

I strive to deliver the same level of care that I expect for my own family, and for myself. Apart from up-to-date knowledge, and a team approach, this includes compassionate and individualized patient care. My goal is to understand what is important for my patients and to educate them about their options so that they can choose what is appropriate for them.

Personal Interests

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, hiking, and long-distance biking. We also travel frequently back to Germany where I grew up.

Clinical Interests

Research in global oncology, which includes improving cancer outcomes for underserved populations in the U.S. but also internationally.

Research Interests

Descriptive epidemiology; outcomes research; comparative effectiveness research; implementation sciences.
