“I am thrilled to enhance the already superb breast team at Pluta Breast Center/Wilmot Cancer Institute. We aim to provide true multi-disciplinary care, meaning patients will see multiple providers in one encounter, who then present the treatment plan to the patient as a team. This type of care ensures that patients receive cutting edge treatments.”

I chose Breast Surgery as my specialty because breast cancer patients are inspiring – they are beaming with hope for themselves, as well as for other breast cancer patients who may come after them. This means that patients join clinical trials, for example, and try to make breast cancer care better for the world. It’s extremely rewarding to care for such engaged, hopeful patients.
My approach to patient care is based on shared decision-making, meaning I do my best to explain everything in a way each patient can understand and be wholly involved in their treatment decisions.
I was born and raised in Syracuse NY, and my entire family still resides there. In addition, my family traditionally spent every holiday season visiting my godparents in Henrietta! I am truly excited for this homecoming, and to serve the community that helped make me who I am today.
