Patient research advocate primarily in oncology, including empowering patients to be partners with their doctors, disruptive innovation in areas of research, all aspects of clinical trials from concept through dissemination of findings. I aspire to seeing that “meaningful change” is the end result of all efforts and not simply a buzzword or a catch-phrase. Passionate about patient centered care and precision medicine and working to ensure representation across all populations. Also interested in advocating for those living with serious mental illness. I lend my voice to those who are unable, unwilling, or unaware that patient **centered** care can only be achieved when the collective patient voice is brought into all conversations.
