My primary research focus is in biobehavioral interactions in persons with cancer and neurologic conditions. I am particularly interested in the area of neuro-oncology, working with both patients and family caregivers to improve outcomes and health care delivery.


I have taught on the undergraduate and graduate level and currently teach Professional Development in the doctoral program.


I serve on multiple national committees, including the executive board of the Neuroscience Nurses Foundation. I also work closely with the National Brain Tumor Foundation, Oncology Nursing Society, and the Behavioral Cooperative Oncology Group, among others.
