As a patient navigator, Alessandra has covered multiple tumor sites including GI, pediatrics, hematology, neurology, dermatology, and sarcoma; however, her specialty is working with head and neck cancers, including endocrine malignancies.
Alessandra believes in giving back to her community and has volunteered for multiple events including free head and neck cancer screenings and connecting her patients with free dental services to avoid delays in care for concurrent chemo/radiation.
