Jessica Shaw, APRN, AGACNP-BC
“I chose to work in oncology because of the patients. Cancer patients, during their journey, inspire me through their perseverance, perspective, and faith. My goal is to advocate and provide support for our patients and families during this chapter of their lives. The providers and resources at The Center make this challenging time a little easier. I am proud to be a part of this team of caregivers.”
