James has been in the healthcare industry for over 20 years and joined the team at Alliance Cancer Care Colorado at Red Rocks in 2008.
He is a certified medical dosimetrist, radiation technologist and therapist, and has his associate degree in radiation technology.
In his role as the medical dosimetrist, most of his work is done behind the scenes. He designs a radiation treatment plan utilizing CT data on a treatment planning computer and works closely with the physician and physicist to ensure the patient’s radiation treatment plan is the best possible. His goal with every plan he designs is to ensure the tumor is receiving the prescribed dose, while protecting the healthy tissue with the lowest dose possible.
What James enjoys most about his role is that he is fortunate to work in an ever changing field. New technologies and planning methods keeps his job fresh. He likes having the opportunity to utilize new and advanced techniques in treatment planning to cure cancer.
James enjoys hiking, backpacking, fishing, hunting, and golfing. Most of the time, he and his wife are busy being the biggest fans of their kids when they are competing in sports.
