Personal Statement: "Every day at UK is different, and I enjoy all aspects of it…patient care, education, clinical research. I enjoy getting the team to work together toward common goals that deliver great care to our patients, train the next generation of the radiation oncology workforce, and find new and better ways to care for patients, not just here at UK, but around the world. When everyone is working together (which we do very well here), it is really beautiful to watch."
