Angela followed in the footsteps of her grandmother and became a nurse. When the same grandmother was diagnosed with stomach cancer, she knew she wanted to work with cancer patients.
Angela chose to do a nursing rotation at MD Anderson Cancer Center and began working there right after graduating from nursing school. She has been an oncology nurse ever since.
“What I love about navigation is that I get to be a trusted partner with patients during their cancer journey. I have learned so much from my patients about strength, courage, and what is important in life.
It makes me feel good to help patients navigate the complex healthcare system and break down barriers to their care, so they can focus on getting better.”
