About

Bio

I specialize in Medical Oncology and Hematology. I believe that music, humor and heart can transform patients’ journeys through the minefield of cancer. I knew that I wanted to connect with my patients through song, and help them tell their stories -- what moves, touches and inspires them. I started EnlightenMed and Lyrical Life because I believe there’s a message in all of this that is much bigger than just songwriting. I’ve seen in my practice and in my own life how important it is to have that connection with someone when you need it most. I want to empower people to reach out to those that need it most, connect with them, create something with them, listen to them. I think when we come together we’re capable of great things, and I hope EnlightenMed & Lyrical Life can help bridge those connections.
