Meet August's Registry Rock Star: Jeanne
Jeanne blog

CHAMPS Oncology is happy to announce our Registry Rock Star for the month of August, Jeanne Smith, CTR! A cancer information specialist for CHAMPS Oncology, Jeanne has worked in the cancer registry for over 30 years. Jeanne has had an interest in the intricacies of cancer from a young age, always interested in learning about areas such as potential causes and prevention. When she became an adult, she discovered the cancer registry field, and, as she describes her early days in the registry, it was a “natural fit.”

In her eyes, the part of the job Jeanne enjoys the most is being able to work with data that positively contributes to the care and lives of cancer patients.

“I’m proud of the profession I work in,” she explained. “It makes me happy knowing the information we collect has an impact on the lives of cancer patients.”

Jeanne resides in Northeast Ohio with her husband and their pet cat. In her free time, she enjoys gardening and cooking. She is a lover of all Italian foods and enjoys listening to classic rock music, such as rock legends Elton John and Billy Joel.

When it comes to bucket list items, the number one goal Jeanne has is to take a train ride through the Rocky Mountains.

Registry Rock Star features a different CHAMPS Oncology employee every month. To learn more, follow #RegistryRockStar on social media. What’s your favorite part about working in the cancer registry?
