Board of Directors
MSN, RN, CRNI, OCN
As a Clinical Specialist for the Center for Clinical and Professional Development at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, I am committed to empower nurses caring for oncology patients by sharing knowledge and developing connections across our hospitals, clinics and industry.
I hope to serve as an ambassador for ONS membership and Oncology Certification throughout our community, both within and beyond Boston. I also hope to engage newer oncology nurses in the Boston chapter of ONS.
As the Director of Research Nursing at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA, I strive to promote ONS's mission through the support and encouragement of my fellow colleagues.
My previous role as the Director at Large of BONS allowed me to work closely with the board of directors and chapter members, learning about all aspects of oncology care. As the President, I look forward to helping the chapter grow throughout the city and open up new educational opportunities for my fellow oncology nurses.

As the Director of Ambulatory Oncology Clinical Services within the Cancer Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, I am passionate about creating innovations in practice, excellence in patient care and patient outcomes.
My scholarly work focused on financial toxicity and the oncology patient and educating nurses on their role in assessing and intervening in this highly distressing side effect of cancer care. I am very
thankful for the support BONS provided my work and am excited to give back as the BONS secretary.
As the Director of Research Nursing at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, I am passionate about the growth and development of the clinical research programs in the community settings. Through leadership, implementation and evaluation of clinical oncology research, it's important to me to break down barriers of trial enrollment to allow for greater access to clinical trials for the community population.
As the ONS treasurer, I am committed to overseeing the management and reporting on the organization's financial administration and enforcing financial policies and procedures. I am excited to be part of the board to support the organization's goals and help drive decision-making for success in its mission.

DIRECTOR AT LARGE
As the VP, Clinical Research Operations and Associate Chief Nurse at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA, I am committed to promoting ONS’s mission of advancing quality cancer care through operationalizing innovative cancer clinical trials and training oncology clinical research nurses to meet the growing research demand. In my role as a Clinical Associate Lecturer at UMASS Boston, I hope to contribute by educating our new generation of nurses and serving as a mentor for those students that wish to pursue oncology nursing as a career.
I am thrilled to have been elected to the Director at Large position and I look forward to working with the BONS board and getting to know the BONS members in the upcoming year.

DIRECTOR AT LARGE
I have served oncology patients and their families for my entire 30-year nursing career. From bedside nursing, to the care I provided as a Nurse Practitioner at MGH, and now as an Account Executive for Abbvie Oncology, I strive to keep the patient as my North Star. It is my hope that my diverse nursing background, recent MBA attainment, and leadership skills will help to shape the Oncology nurses of the future.
As the Director at Large of BONS I will work closely with the other Board members to ensure that both the regional and national ONS goals are met while keeping the focus on the patients we serve.
SCHOLARSHIP & MEMBER ENGAGEMENT
As a former Oncology nurse in the Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies at MGH and now an Oncology Specialist with Amgen Oncology, I am passionate about providing cutting edge therapies to patients while bringing education and resources to oncology nurses.
As the Scholarship and Member Engagement chair I hope to bring support to those hoping to continue their education in Oncology Nursing and bring new ideas and views to BONS as our membership expands.
