What I do
I help women with ovarian and other gynecological cancers. I am a clinician, professor and researcher, directing ovarian cancer research at City of Hope. I am working to find a cure.
Why I do it
I want to be that person who can help people feel safe and calm in the midst of something scary – just like the doctors who gave my parents so much relief long ago when they were anxious about my brother’s health.
My Big Career Moment
During my gynecology rotation, I met women with advanced cancer who were isolated and in so much pain. It just broke my heart. I made a point to spend time with them every day, and I realized: I have to cure this disease.
