​I have been a nurse practitioner for almost 15 years in oncology in a busy academic setting, specializing in melanoma and other cutaneous malignancies. We treat a large number of patients both on and off protocol with immune checkpoint inhibitors and other immunotherapy agents. In my work with immune checkpoint inhibitors, I have taken a special interest in the management of immune related adverse events and lead a multi-disciplinary group at Mayo Clinic (Immunotherapy Toxicity Management Working Group), which was formed to better streamline management of patients receiving immunotherapy across tumor groups as well as explore new ways to monitor and predict irAE's . We have published several peer-reviewed articles on the subject.​
