Why I Joined Carevive
I am very passionate about oncology. Admittedly, I fell in love with oncology in nursing school. Shortly after, my personal experiences of cancer in my own family deepen my commitment to improve the quality of cancer care delivered to all patients. I feel honored to treat people who have been diagnosed with cancer and appreciate every interaction with my patients. I met Carevive as a user back in 2014, worked with the content development team as a consultant and officially joined the team in 2017 to help bring oncology tools and share my expertise to cancer centers looking to build their programs.
