Biographical Sketch

I am a board certified oncology pharmacist and currently practice as gratis assistant professor at the LSU-Health School of Medicine.  My practice site is located at the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center in Shreveport which serves patients from Shreveport to Monroe, East Texas, and as far south as Lake Charles.  We treat an indigent patient population with cancer according to evidence-based medicine as well as taking into account their social and economic struggles.

The clinics I am involved in include: breast, brain and sarcoma clinic, lung and head and neck clinic, digestive clinic, and benign and malignant hematology clinic.  My role is multifaceted and involves collaboration with hematology/oncology physicians and nurses to provide optimal patient care.  One of my main activities includes developing supportive care plans for cancer patients including but not limited to preventing and treating nausea and vomiting, pain, constipation, infections, etc.  I also counsel patients on oral cancer therapy, supportive care medications as well as verify home medications and herbal products to account for adherence as well as interactions with current cancer treatment.  I provide medication-based information to physicians as well as perform pharmacy informatics duties.

My main research areas of interest include retrospective reviews and patient education.  It has focused on efficacy, toxicity, and drug interactions with cancer treatments in patients with hematologic malignancies.  I am also expanding into research involving pharmacy-based medication education.  I am also interested in academic research regarding the role of pharmacy students in oncology practice.
