Biography

I am the Director of MMC’s Surgical Oncology program, and lead a team that includes general surgical, thoracic, and breast oncological surgeons, as well as advanced practice providers. Prior to arriving in Maine, I was Director of Gastrointestinal Oncology at East Carolina University. After med school, I completed a fellowship in complex surgical oncology at University of Toronto, where I specialized in complex GI, HPB, robotic, and soft tissue surgery. I have published more than 120 abstracts and manuscripts, and my research interests include quality improvement, enhanced recovery, and evidence-based practice. I was attracted to surgical oncology because it involves patient-centered, team-based care that is designed to cure or improve quality of life. Also, I value the privilege of establishing long-term relationships with patients, often during the most difficult time in their life.
