Julie is our Oncology Navigator at our St. Vincent’s Riverside location. As a nurse navigator, she has the privilege of helping patients through the diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship portions of their care. When it comes to helping patients, Julie feels that “showing compassionate care is not a one-time transaction, but with each encounter it is an opportunity to make that person feel as if they are the focus”. She comes from a medical family, but didn’t become a nurse until her son and daughter were close to high school graduation. Julie and her husband chose Jacksonville to be close to family, South Carolina, the beach, and their beloved Florida Gators. When not working, Julie enjoys traveling to new areas, cheering for the Gators, and spending time with her 3 precious granddaughters.
