I began my career with the Cancer Center in 2002, overseeing the Familial Melanoma research project. I became the health educator for the Skin Cancer Institute when it was established in 2005. Since then, I've educated patients at high risk for skin cancer in the Pigmented Lesion and Cutaneous Oncology clinics at the University of Arizona Cancer Center, overseen all educational materials, and aided in the development of educational brochures, videos and website information on skin cancer prevention and detection.
