Meet Ava Pettiford

As an Oncology Patient Coordinator, Ava is responsible for scheduling new patients for the Multidisciplinary Urologic Oncology program and ensures that each patient’s entire course of care is appropriately coordinated.

Ava Pettiford“I like to have fun and I do cut up a lot,” she says. “I’m kind of known for that.” And the patients do remember her. “One patient still calls me, just to check in,” she says. “And I’ll check in with her. Sometimes, we form long-term friendships with patients."

And that's exactly why Ava works here - the patients. "I love meeting and helping people," she explains.

She also loves to shop, read, take long walks, travel and spend time with her three-year-old granddaughter.
