Board of Directors
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 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 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 a clinical research nurse with the Center for Head and Neck Oncology, and previously the Center for Cancer Therapeutic Innovation, at Dana-Farber, I am committed to serving patients being treated on experimental clinical trials and working to advance ONS’ vision of transforming cancer care.
As treasurer of BONS, I hope to continue to uphold the goals and values of this group, and actively work to empower and engage my fellow oncology nurses to be more active in their community and within our careers.

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.

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.
