Practicing in the field of oncology since 1983, my experience includes 36 years in Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center / Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
My publishing experience includes numerous peer-reviewed articles on chemotherapy and biotherapy, five book chapters including a chapter for the Joint Commission Resources on Closed System Transfer Devices (CSTDs), and having served as editor for a book on BMT. I have presented nationally and internationally at nursing and pharmacy conferences on a variety of topics and have been the principal investigator in two published nursing research studies, with the results of a wipe test project currently being drafted.
Involvement with the Oncology Nursing Society includes having served as Coordinator for the Chemotherapy Special Interest Group, 5 years as contributing editor for ONS Connect, 5 years on the OCN test development committee, and 5 years on the BMT Certification committee including 2 years as Committee Chair. I am currently a reviewer for the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing.
While officially retired as of June of 2022, I continue to consult in numerous areas involving oncology nursing and education.
