Nurse Practitioner, AOCNP
As a nurse practitioner at The Ghosh Center, I care for oncology and hematology patients from the start of treatment through follow up. My education and certifications include:
Board-certified as an advanced oncology certified nurse practitioner from the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation, 2009
Board-certified as a family nurse practitioner from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, 2002
Masters of Science in nursing from Clarke College, 2002
Bachelors of Science in nursing from Mount Mercy College, 1996
I met Dr. Ghosh in 2004 when my dad was diagnosed with cancer. I was working as in adult cardiology as a nurse practitioner and loved my cardiac patients. At my dad's appointments, my family and I felt cared for. Everyone in Dr. Ghosh's office, from the receptionist to the nurses and ultimately Dr. Ghosh, treated us with respect, listened to our concerns, answered all of our questions, educated us to make informed decisions and genuinely cared for us.
Although I never expected to leave my love of cardiology, when asked, I eventually decided to be part of Dr. Ghosh’s “Patients First” vision. I took a leap of faith and joined Dr. Ghosh in 2006. I have walked this cancer walk as a daughter, friend and provider and bring that perspective to our patients and their loved ones.
I am abundantly blessed to have a husband who loves and supports me unconditionally and four amazing children. My family provides me with lots of laughter and lots of stories to share. There is never a dull moment in our house. My time outside of The Ghosh Center is spent with my family. I do get the opportunity to travel once in a while, which I enjoy. I love to binge-read a good book and am a whiz at jigsaw puzzles, a skill I shared with my dad.
My patients teach me things every day. I watch them walk this walk and see how amazing the human spirit is. The people I meet impact my life in profound and meaningful ways. It’s a privilege to be part of their journey.
