I have lost several family members to cancer. The potential to help patients at Mirati is a huge motivator and something that makes all the time and travel worth it!
Our team’s success is the result of our collective dedication to one another, our patients, and the cutting-edge and highly impactful science we work on.
As a daughter of Vietnamese refugees, and having lost my mother to lung cancer, I understand the hardships in understanding and navigating the healthcare system.
It is important to speak up for yourself. Once I recognized that, I identified my interests, career goals, and how I was positioned for certain opportunities – then I started advocating for myself.
During my childhood, many in my community looked at cancer as a mystery. My work at Mirati allows me to help physicians answer some of those questions and offer potential solutions to some of the issues that patients face with cancer.
I continue to be humbled by the opportunity to help others in their battle with cancer.
Having a child with significant medical challenges was a true test of my faith. Every time I reflect on our journey, it refuels my dedication to helping patients and their loved ones through some of the most challenging times in their lives.
At Mirati, I appreciate that each day the actions I take can mean greater access to care for patients.
Working at Mirati provides me an opportunity to liaise with healthcare decision-makers to strategize tactics for mitigating health disparities for oncology patients.
We are strongest when we have a diverse and inclusive workforce of different races, backgrounds, and experiences to help propel us forward in a purposeful and equitable way.
I’m inspired daily by working with people who are the best at what they do.
I’m most excited about working at Mirati because of the culture, the camaraderie and knowing that together we’re working with urgency to help patients with cancer.
To sustain our success, we embrace diverse perspectives and lived experiences (as of July 1, 2023).*
