Tricia is a board-certified therapy medical physicist working for Varian Medical Systems, contracted at City of Hope Atlanta. Although originally born in Tampa, Florida, Tricia spent most of her childhood in Northeast Pennsylvania. She obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh and her masters in Medical Physics from Georgia Institute of Technology. She completed a residency through Landauer Medical Physics and has worked in the same clinic ever since.

Her clinic has three TrueBeams and a Bravos afterloader. In her time there, she has had the opportunity to work with VisionRT, Calypso, and Zeiss IORT, as well as many complex treatment techniques including SRS/SRT/SBRT, DIBH, and Triggered Imaging. She has been a member of the practice quality improvement (PQI) program, which is an in-house program dedicated to improving the quality and efficiency of every aspect of clinical treatment.

When not working, Tricia enjoys spending time with her husband and two kids, as well as extended family. She also enjoys playing or watching sports, reading, and live music.
