Meet November's Registry Rock Star: Sarah
Sarah Blog

CHAMPS Oncology is pleased to announce its Registry Rock Star nominee for the month of November, Sarah, CTR! Sarah has worked in the cancer registry for only nine months, but in that span of time, she has already made a major impact. Driven by her strong interest in the medical field, she pursued the certified tumor registrar (CTR) path because she knew she wanted a career that would allow her to learn something new every day. After discussing the field with a family friend who works in the cancer registry, Sarah knew immediately it would be a great career path for her.

“A family friend of mine explained that working in the cancer registry field is much like being an investigator,” Sarah explained. “From there, I instantly knew it would be a good fit for me.”

Sarah loves that the field is everchanging and filled with opportunities to acquire new knowledge, skills and expertise. Above all, though, she is driven and heartened by the fact that her work goes a long way towards helping others.

“My favorite thing about my line of work is that the data we collect contributes to a nationwide effort to learn more about treating and preventing cancer,” Sarah explained. “I’m happy to be part of a greater cause. I also love that the field is constantly evolving, so there is always something new to learn.”

Sarah resides in Dayton, Ohio with her fiancé. In her free time, she loves spending time outside. She’s an avid hiker and doesn’t pass up an opportunity to dabble in photography. Sports are a big fixture in her life as well  she enjoys watching basketball, football and baseball with her fiancé.

When it comes to an item on her bucket list, Sarah would love to visit the renowned Nordic island country, Iceland.
