BIO Caroline spent 15 years as a hospice nurse and five years in oncology prior to becoming an Advance Practice nurse. She finds it a privilege to learn what gives patients meaning and to help them navigate challenging diagnoses toward their personal goals. She wanted to bring the supportive care of hospice to patients and families well before the final months of life. Upon completion of her MSN she sought opportunities to be part of a palliative care team, finding that at Salem Health in 2014 When not providing care, she enjoys hiking, biking, playing music, and spending time with family.
Clinical Interests As a certified Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner, she helps patients and families create goals for their care. She's experienced in Advance Care planning, symptom management and coordinating care with other healthcare team members to provide the best quality of life possible. She uses primary care and supportive medicine models, as well as integrative therapies to address suffering at all levels.
