Biography:

I am a surgical oncologist, clinical geneticist and researcher who treats patients with breast cancer, melanoma and strong family histories of cancer. As a surgeon, I specialize in treating high-risk breast cancer patients and assess cutaneous, subcutaneous and nodal masses and perform appropriate resections. As a geneticist, I advise patients on risk assessments based on family history, options for genetic testing and preventive screening and treatments. My research interests focus on all aspects of surgical oncology and cancer genetics, in particular, breast tumors associated with the inheritable BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, two of the most prominent genes associated with breast cancer risk. In addition to my clinical and research work, I am also committed to educating the next generation of oncologists. I teach and mentor young physicians, plan extension and continuing education programs, and I train students in genetic counseling. I have published my work extensively in terms of both research and teaching. My writing has been published as book chapters, curriculum, reports and much more. I also serve as a member of the Committee on Applicants for the American College of Surgeons (Ohio District #3).
