I have been in Florida since the late 1980s and consider myself a native. After graduating Nursing School as a Registered Nurse (RN) in 1991, one of my first jobs was working on the oncology floor and I knew right away that was where I wanted to be. I have been board-certified (OCN) by the Oncology Nursing Society since 1998 and have worked both inpatient units and outpatient offices taking care of all types of cancer patients. I received my master’s degree in nursing (MSN) becoming an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) in 2008 and have worked with Dr. Sumeet Chandra since 2011. We have recently joined Cancer Care Centers of Brevard. I feel it is a privilege to be on the board of such a wonderful organization that offers so much help and support to our community of breast cancer patients.
