Research & Clinical Interests
Research Interests: 

I have an academic interest in hematology medical education and training. I am the medical director of Hematology VA-ECHO for the Northwest Network (VISN20). The ECHO program delivers hematology CME content and peer to peer educational outreach to VA providers regionally and nationally. I am co-director for the Blood and Cancer medical student block at the University of Washington School of Medicine, and I serve on the national ABIM Item-Writing Task Force for Hematology.

Clinical Interests: 

I care for patients at the Puget Sound VA, where I specialize in benign and malignant hematology and bone marrow transplantation. I have a clinical and research focus on plasma cell dyscrasias including multiple myeloma, Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia, AL amyloidosis, and MGUS-related disorders.

I strive to improve access to care for veterans throughout VISN20 by maintaining an active telehealth clinic, answering electronic consultations, and serving as principal investigator for clinical trials for patients with hematologic disease.
