As the initial contact for patients at Simms/Mann UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology, my goal is to welcome and introduce our center in a comforting manner. My job is to educate and inform the patients that have been touched by cancer of the services that are available to them to better their overall well-being.
I graduated from CSUN with a B.S. in Health Administration. I originally began studying Radiologic Sciences. While interning at Providence Tarzana Medical Center in the Surgical Unit, I realized I wanted more interaction with patients and really enjoyed being part of a health care team that provided whole-person care and support. Working at the Center has reinforced how much I value providing high-quality patient care and I will be going back to school to become a social worker.
Before joining Simms/Mann, I worked at the UCLA Gonda-Goldschmied Vascular Surgery Clinic scheduling surgeries for the participating nine surgeons. I also previously worked at Health Advocates, LLC; as a Case manager I provided education to help guide patients through the health care system.
Personal Perspectives & Personal Interest
I feel privileged to be a part of such a powerful team, making a significant positive impact for cancer patients and their families. When I’m not working I spend as much time with my family finding new group activities. I also love going latin dancing, trying new foods, and binge-watching the next best show.
