Professional Statement

I am a board certified medical oncologist specializing in breast cancer care and research. I am the medical director and director of clinical research at Baylor's Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center and the Smith Clinic/ Ben Taub Hospital. I am also the co-leader of the breast program at Baylor's Dan L Duncan Cancer Center.

My research is focused on translating laboratory findings to the clinic to develop new treatments, and then taking clinical findings and materials back to the lab to study them with other scientists.

I dream of a world free of the pain and suffering of breast cancer and work tirelessly every day towards making that dream a reality.
