Breast Nurse Navigator

The Womens' Cancer Center at Fox Chase

I came to work at Fox Chase Cancer Center as a graduate nurse in 1986. In this capacity, I became certified in chemotherapy administration and took care of a variety of patients receiving inpatient chemotherapy treatments, as well as those recovering from surgery. Two years later I took the opportunity to transfer to the outpatient department and began working in the Infusion Room administering chemotherapy. Over the course of ten years, I transitioned between the infusion room and the outpatient clinic, dividing my efforts between both areas. In addition, while working in the Breast Evaluation Clinic, I gained invaluable experience in providing education and support in medical oncology to women undergoing care for all stages of breast cancer.

I left Fox Chase for several years, during which I expanded my experience working in clinical trials with melanoma patients in a university hospital. I also spent time in a private practice oncology setting where I was able to see how patients connect with care in the surrounding community.

In 2004 I returned to Fox Chase to work with the Nursing Research Department as a research nurse and project manager with studies investigating strategies to improve symptom management of patients undergoing chemotherapy, specifically fatigue. In this role I was fortunate to develop rewarding relationships with patients, learning so much from their experiences.

As a navigator I have the privilege to provide support, guidance and direction to women in all phases of breast cancer along with the breast service line team.  The rewards are many and I look forward to continued opportunities to help patients obtain the compassionate care they deserve.
