Amanda, RN, BSN, OCN, is Katzmann’s breast health navigator. She helps assure our breast cancer patients receive the best possible care, based on their individual needs. As the term navigator suggests, her main role is to help patients “navigate” the health care system throughout their illness. She is available to provide education and support to patients as well as practical assistance in eliminating certain barriers such as transportation or financial concerns. Amanda serves as a point of contact for patients and collaborates with other care providers to assure our patients have access to a myriad of cancer care services at Mercy and within the community.
In addition, Amanda has 13 years’ experience as a cancer and oncology nurse.
Amanda may be reached by calling (515) 222-7853.
