A native of Connecticut, Amanda received her Bachelor of Science degree from Siena College in Loudonville, New York, and went on to receive both her nursing degree and Master of Science in Nursing at Yale University School of Nursing. While obtaining her Adult Nurse Practitioner degree, she specialized in oncology and is currently certified as an Adult Oncology Nurse Practitioner by the Oncology Nurses Credentialing Center (ONCC).
Amanda has worked at Yale-New Haven Hospital/Smilow Cancer Hospital in the Thoracic Oncology Program, and spearheaded the Yale Lung Screening and Pulmonary Nodule Program. In 2013, she moved to Texas with her husband and continued her career as an oncology nurse practitioner at MD Anderson Cancer Center, caring for patients with lung, and head and neck malignancies.
Amanda joined New England Cancer Specialists in the summer of 2015 and focuses on the treatment of breast cancer patients from the time of initial diagnosis, through treatment and survivorship. She strongly believes in a clinical team-based care model and the shared decision-making process between patient and provider.
Amanda lives in Cape Elizabeth with her family, and enjoys all things outdoors, especially biking and spending time at the shore.
