As the Billing Operations Manager for Department of Radiation Oncology at the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, I find that growth in our field of practice comes with outreach to other Radiation Oncology facilities and learning from other administrators in our field. SROA provides me with the foundation and resources I need to grow in my job and as an administrator. Radiation Oncology is so different from other specialties, and I found that SROA provides me with everything I need to connect with other members, and to stay up to date with billing trends and coding updates. Connecting with other members provides me with the information and resources necessary to help me accomplish the job I was hired to do for my facility. I have worked in Radiation Oncology now for twenty five plus years; and have been a member of the society for the past fifteen.
For the past 10 years I have been an active member of the society having participated on many committees and special Interest groups; I am currently active on the Payor Trends and Mentorship SIG’s. I have enjoyed working on the BOD as a Member-at-Large over the past couple of years learning even more about our society and the membership we value. I believe that as members of this society it is our responsibility to bring up the next generation of administrators in our field, to encourage new members and to insure we provide them with resources that help them reach their goals and prepare them to pick up where we leave off.
On a more personal level, I enjoy gardening, I am passionate about succulents. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our two grandsons. As a green commuter I enjoy walking to and from work, and my current fur baby is a boxer names Junior.
