It’s time for our next installment of Support Super Star Spotlight! In this series, CHAMPS Oncology highlights our registry support specialists in recognition of their tireless efforts of ensuring better data saves lives. This installment features Felicia Tunstall.
Felicia has been working in the cancer registry for eighteen months. She decided to become a support specialist because she was looking for an opportunity to learn more about the cancer registry. She wanted to find a stepping stone to learn more about how the field operates, how the policies and procedures work and ultimately to gain expertise and knowledge to take the certified tumor registrar (CTR) exam.
In her daily work, Felicia is responsible for casefinding and follow-ups with her assigned client hospital. Felicia finds the work worthwile because of the good it does –allowing progress to be made in cancer treatment.
“My favorite thing about my line of work is being part of a registry that collects data that will essentially provide researchers and healthcare providers better methods to advance or monitor cancer treatments,” she explained.
Felicia is a resident of the state of Maryland, residing in a town right between Washington D.C. and Baltimore. She lives with her fiancé, Justin, and their two dogs, a four-year-old golden retriever named Nayla and a two-year-old Poodle named Elias.
Outside of work, Felicia loves to celebrate her hard work and pamper herself with a well-earned trip to Massage Envy. Her number one goal on her bucket list right now is to complete her PhD. Presently, she’s completing her master’s degree in public health at Johns Hopkins University, looking to graduate in 2021.
Each installment of CHAMP Oncology’s Support Superstar Spotlight features a registry support team member and recognizes their important work of ensuring better data saves lives. To learn more, follow #SupportSuperstar on social media. What’s your favorite part about working in the cancer registry?

Kelly is what people would call a "boomerang employee" — someone who leaves a company and later returns to work for the company again. But, as she explains in this #OncologyOutlook blog, that isn't a bad thing and it actually helped her further appreciate everything CHAMPS Oncology has to offer: https://bit.ly/341yGbx
