Professional and Medical Interest
My clinical interest lies in oncologic surgery with a focus on melanoma and soft tissue sarcomas. I am also actively involved in basic science and translational research focusing on the signaling mechanisms determining cancer cell survival/stemness and is active in the development of clinical trials. I have a particular interests in surgical education and look forward to working to reduce the burden of cancer in our community by working with partners throughout the state and region.
How did you fall in love with your field?
My father is the only general surgeon in a small town in Louisiana. I was able to see the impact that he had on our community, particularly giving hope to our neighbors and friends with cancer. I sought out the education and training to provide even more effective treatments for patients with cancer. Additionally, I am passionate about partnering with others in reducing the burden of cancer in our community.
