Jamie Voccola graduated with a BSN in nursing in 1996. Jamie started her career as a nurse on the floor where she fell in love with pediatric hematology-oncology. While working on the inpatient floor, Jamie went back to school for a masters and graduated in 2002. Since 2002, her primary team has been the outpatient pediatric sarcoma team.
They have a wonderful population of patients, where they see infants up through the lifespan, into the 5th decade of life. Sarcomas in general present significant challenges for patients and families. Jamie works with their patients and families to make the experience more bearable and less frightening through education, psychosocial support, and experience that over 20 years in the specialty has taught her.
