I am the Director of Clinical Services at Provision CARES Proton Therapy Center, Knoxville, TN. I began my radiation oncology career as a nurse at Provision Radiation Therapy where I quickly developed a passion for improving the lives of people affected by cancer I earned oncology nursing certification (OCN) in 2013. Provision opened a proton therapy center that same year, and I became the nurse manager. While oncology nursing remains a professional passion for me, I desired an opportunity to have more influence in operations and I moved into my current role in January 2017. I thoroughly enjoy the ability to combine my clinical experience with growing knowledge and experience in management, administration, and leadership. My professional interests include program development and optimizing clinical operations to support healthcare workers and enhance patient experience.
I have two wonderful sons and an amazing husband who champions me in my many professional and personal goals. Our miniature dachshund and three cats fill our home with lots of extra love and entertainment. I enjoy exercising, cooking and baking, and taking in the great outdoors with my family.
